Well I am a 2:1 main halyard
boat with an Antal block on the end. Twist is put in from the winch
(electric). The line is Marlow D2 racing
, unobtanium, neverbreakorstretch line. The Spinlock XX clutch
was always slipping until I went 2:1 with carbon sails
. The next step up was a line jammer used on VO70's. It is a LOT of halyard
with the 2:1.
I use a figure eight pattern when coiling the halyard, and periodically flip the unloaded line in the opposite direction. Once in a while I will run the line to the masthead and let the twists unwind on their own.
These are good problems to have.
