Thanks for your interest.
I have not included delivery
in the price because we can ship worldwide, and it is impracticable to quote shipping
prices to every country.
The Steersman uses the existing jib sheet winch. It is re-mounted on to the Steersman's winch platform. If you do not have a self tailing
winch you can either by a pair to replace your existing winches, or you can fit a "Wincher" to the existing winch to make it self tailing
The "Wincher" is very cheap
, it can be purchased from most chandlers. It is a ring shaped attachement made of rubber with a groove to fit over the top rim of the winch. They are very good. We use them for our halyards.
I say works excellently, the magazine says OK. I guess I'm prejudice, but I still think it works excellently. Toby sailed with me for one day, I have sailed with this all winter in a variety of wind
conditions and I can honestly say and I would be very happy to rely on it on a short or long voyage.
I hope this helps.
