If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

My solution to my old sheaves

On the advice of the good people from riggingandhardware.com, I tried using aluminox to fill the groove on the old sheave. Total cost: $12! FYI, I couldnt find a single supplier who could make sheaves that have a 7/16 bore, so this was my only option besides going to a machine shop (I called 3 places, and never got a call back).

Unrelated: I ordered new halyards from the aforementioned rigging shop on 1/3/11 and they showed up at my house on 1/4/11. Talk about excellent service!

I went with the 3/8 inch new england ropes VPC with 5/16 inch wichard thimble headboard shackles on each halyard. The new halyards feel very nice and will look pretty on the boat.

I talked with the rigging guys and explained that we have a roller furler. He said to go with standard headboard shackle since there is no way to "quickly" bring down a roller furling sail like you would with a standard jib. That saved me some money too, since i am willing to use a shackle key to undo the furler shackle if i need to switch to a different sail for any reason.
