Re: Modification for adjustable genoa cars
That is one concern I have, "line congestion". You will need to have a good amount of purchase on the car, many lines all running along my teak gunwale just outside my stanchions. Along with my furling lead line and my asymmetric spinnaker lead line.
Right now I have cordage on my locking pin which helps quickly unlocking the pin and pushing to the right position.
My goal this year is to provide more attention to trimming my sails. My kids are slightly older, much better swimmers and more comfortable on the sailboat while heeling so I don't need to have an eagle on them every minute. Last year..."Keep a very close eye on my son on the foredeck or trim up my main to get that top twist out"....
