Re: Rigging gybe preventer
I tried using the Dutchman system and was never able to properly use it so I just sold it. My cabin top is too high, and I would never be able to have any tension on the line for the Dutchman thing to work. I am now looking at possible solutions. It's hard without pictures. I really don't understand most of the explanations I find on how to setup a preventer. It still baffles me and it's something I have to figure out before I head out to the Caribbean.
I really like boom brakes. Too bad your did not work out.
Good diagram. Iffy spelling.
