That is certainly a very good point. I guess I better try everything else (affordable) before changing to 2:1

That sounds like a complicated setup, when adding all that hardware (on two sides) we are in new-bigger winch territory

Re: 2:1 purchase for genoa sheet

Not terribly complicated, as it was basically set up as a 2:1 mainsheet with a single winch. The traveler track meant that a single sheet was all that was required with a centrally mounted winch.

The big deal on that boat, given it was working for charter was that the sheet never had to leave the winch drum so no passengers would get in smacked around when tacking.
