This is a simple solution to starboard genoa sheet which runs with a very sharp angle to the winches which causes the fast and frequent wear. FP doesn't accept this under warranty which is clearly a design issue.
This system not only preserve the sheet but also enables the use of the starboard winch.

Cheers

Hi Yeloya,
Neat setup I like this arrangement. Now do you have good advice on how I set up my blocks for an asymetrical spinnaker. I need to create an arrangement on the bow so that I can adjust the tack occasionally, and I am not sure where to mount the aft blocks for the sheet and guy when coming back to the helms station... what would you do, or anyone else for that matter? Thanks Steve on Mari's Leonardo
