Either you are not asking the wenches right or are not looking in the right places.

Winch stress

I think Weyalan brought a good point or question...Which is " Is a winch designed to take that kind of stress from extended pressure and load from continous sheet stress."

I've always had cam cleats behind the winch and was fine. But now I think thats a good question.

Thanks,

2nd thought??

Would't a self tailing winch hold the sheet in place (at the top, of course) and a clutch or cleat not be necessary??

Here is a list of lines that I have running back along the cabin top and into rope clutches:

1. Mainsail halyard (i.e. mainsail halyard #2)
2. Mainsail topping lift (i.e. mainsail halyard #2)
3. Genoa halyard (i.e. headsail halyard #1)
4. Jib halyard (i.e. headsail halyard #2)
5. Spinnaker halyard #1
6. Spinnaker halyard #2
7. Mainsail outhaul
8. Boom vang
9. Spinnaker pole topping lift
10. Spinnaker pole downhaul - starboard
11.Spinnaker pole downhaul - port
12. #1 reefing line
13. #2 reefing line

Also, at any given time, I can have the following lines running back along cabin top as well:
14. #3 reefing line
15. Spinnaker sheet tweaker - starboard
16. Spinnaker sheet tweaker - port
17. Preventer - starboard
18. Preventer - port

I have 12 rope clutches, various cam cleats and some horn cleats for good measure....

The three halyards on the Stb are Furling lift, spinnaker and mainsail.
On the port they are Genoa, cunningham and topping lift.

But now I have to more lines on each side, which are hand hauls lashed in with cam cleets. And they are the 1st and 2nd reefs and the mainsail 1st and 2nd outhauls. I do need a 3rd outhaul but for now I just pull off the 2nd and put on the 3rd eye. I haven't really needed to reef that 25% yet. But if I were going offshore I would definatly get it rigged.

As well, on deck I have downhaul for the spinnaker pole and halyard for the furling.
The boom vang is rigid with a cam cleet and can be reached from gangway and I use a boom brake, which is a life saver, I wouldn't go without ever again especially with 375 sq.ft. mainsail.........._/)
