I was told for the first time last how to get it to lock into place so it would hold the boom up. and so I can lower it . Not sure what the other setting does?

Re: Not Sure Wich Winch to use

Jack that spinlock rigid vang has a powerful internal tackle for the vang mode and uses a mechanical latch mechanism for boom support. Once you release the support mode you do have a vang.. inside the strut.

We have the identical model on our boat.

Re: Not Sure Wich Winch to use

Our C&C 35 MKIII has a movable jib sheet block ( genoa lead car) located on a car on the jib tracks and a Ronstadt deck organizer with sheeve that serves as a turning block located on the outside of the combing below and slightly behind the location of the self tailing winch. The jib sheet goes from the clew....through the genoa lead car on the track....along the combing through the permanently fixed sheeve (deck organizer) behind and below the self tailing winch up to the winch drum. This way the jib sheet stay low along the combing and has a good angle of entry to the ST winch

Itgoshen.. Where you been???

I snapped some pics last week of our genoa leads, and the Spinlock vang setup so you can see what that looks like... presumably you've sorted out the genoa situation from all the descriptions, but here's a picture or two.

Why are you running your jib sheet through a snatch block on the rail?

So that with the jib lead forward on the track we a) don't have too flat an approach angle on the drum.. in fact it's always the same no matter where the jib lead position is... and b) so that the sheet doesn't 'saw' through the coaming/cabinside, esp on the port side where it has to come onto the inboard side of the winch drum.
