Yup, been that way for awhile.  Just gotta keep those characters at bay.  :)

Oh and just ignore that ..undefined function.. arrow as well.  Seems posts get updated or new posts get ..posted.. even with the error.  Just go back to the original post and refresh.

Quirky   ;)

Just to clarify, mine is lead along the cabin top through fairleads, not along the  toe rail.

Similar to Joel.  I have the furling line led along the bases of the stanchions across the gate (sadly) and I have a snatch block just aft of the side gate; and then a sprung block just behind, which has a fair lead to the starboard aft winch.  (I have a double-ended mainsheet using the centre winch in the cockpit and also the starboard aft winch.  If I were to do it again, I would set the mainsheet on port aft winch, so that the starboard aft winch is exclusively for reefing.)

Mine is lead outside the cockpit to a cleat just in front of the starboard primary winch.  If we are on port tack and need to furl the line will be lead to the aft winch.
Keeps us in the cockpit most of the time.

Milwaukee 28 volt or other hi torque right angle and the key is about $30 online.  I bought a second battery.   Total investment was under 600.

Congratulations, Don, of splashing the boat. The picture posted was taken before I eliminated the 4:1 blocks. Yes, you are correct regarding the rigging of my current backstays. The included picture was taken in Bequia and I was focusing on the junior sailors but if you look closely, the Arimid running back stay can be seen rigged to the padeye.

Hello Jim and thank you for your kind reply! Sorry for he belated reply as we just managed to get out of the yard! Wheww is an understatement as you well know.   :( Anyway, splash with no leaks! ;)

You indicate you treated you're running back stays as my rigger suggested? Having said that... looking at your pic, it looks like there is a 3:1 or 4:1 block with a cam lock? Is this correct or is this an old pic?? Advise.

So, is the Aramid line....running from the mast T-bolt backing plate down to your large turning block.....and then dyneema to the winch?

Lastly.... when you're employing the back stay (running) where is your anchor point? Toe rail?  or Geona traveler? or?? Needless to say, would love to see a pic in operation or not.

Thanks
Don

Hylas Discussion / Roller Furler Line led to cockpit on 44

Does anyone have their roller furler line lead to the cockpit on a 44?  If so how does it run.  Currently mine is set up to be pulled in from the aft deck, with use of aft deck winches if needed.  looking for options to move it into the cockpit.

Hylas Discussion / Mast Pulpit on Hylas 44. 45.5, or 46
« Last post by NordicSunII on August 29, 2021, 01:46:23 PM »
Does anyone seen or have a mast pulpit on a Hylas 44, 45.5, or 46?  I'm considering leading lines aft, or putting in a mast pulpit instead.  Looking for options to increase safety while reefing main.
