Solent or inner forestay Cav 32

Recommended Posts

Not on a Cav 32, but I have a similar setup on my Lotus 9.2. Inner forestay goes to Solent worm drive thingy. I'm sure there is a proper technical term for it. The Solent drive is shackled to the deck and then tightened to requirement with the worm drive handle. I have a roller furling genoa, but I've used the solent two or three times to come home when the wind has been 25 with a smaller hanked jib because of course the furler sets like a used bedsheet when you have several rolls in it. The boat seems to like the arrangement and it only takes a couple of minutes to fit up.
