Winchless Genoa System:
To control the large overlapping genoa, the genoa sheet is led belowdeck to a Small Boat traveler car mounted to the inside of the boat. The traveler car features a plate with a 57 mm Carbo Ratchamatic® Cheek block w/cam. Crew use the traveler car to sheet the genoa to 90% of full trim. Then use a 6:1 block and tackle system to pull the belowdeck traveler car forward for precise adjustments—all without ever leaving the rail.
The 210 mainsheet system uses 57mm Carbo singles on the boom and traveler and cleats to a 57mm Carbo Ratchet mounted on a Barney post. A 57 mm Carbo Ratchamatic, mounted immediately above the Rachet, provides the skipper with additional holding power of 10:1. When sheet loads decrease, the Ratchamatic® spins freely for fasteasing action. The mainsheet tail runs into the boom to a 5:1 fine-tune purchase system. Two Micro blocks create a 15:1 purchase for finger tip upwind control. The fine tune exits the bottom of the boom through an in-line thru-deck bullet block and cleats on a pivoting exit or "headknocker" block.
