Here's a link to the thread I started on Sailnet. At the end are a couple of pics of my new setup, installed 3 months ago.
Converting to double-line reefing - Page 3 - SailNet Community
is all Garhauer, except for the winch which is a used Barient
off Ebay. Garhauer stuff is very competitively priced and works well.
I've had a chance to use it all for a few months and it works great. This system has 2 lines per reef.
The one thing I'd suggest you think about is that you are sure to want to add more lines later, so plan ahead for some spare capacity.
Are you sure one reefing line is enough? Single
line reefing is not well thought of, so I'd at least leave one spare to switch to 2-line reefing.
I kept the main halyard separate on the other side of the coaming.
Ergonomically, I do not think it'll be convenient to have one winch for the main halyard AND the reefing. I leave the main halyard on it's own winch all the time, so it can be re-tensioned.
The sequence for reefing is :
Ease main halyard
Pull reefing tack line down so the white mark on the line is at the clutch
(easy, little force needed)
Tension main halyard
Tension clew line (in a blow needs a winch to do this)
If you have a deck
, the normal way to add blocks to the mast base is to add a mast-base organiser. Mine is keel-stepped, and space is restricted, hence the 4 stand up blocks I added.
