I put main and jib inside with a stopper on the jib , to be able to use the winchs for spin., staysail and pole topping lifts.
Also added ridged vang, self tailing main halyard winch, self tailing reefing winch. jack lines for main sail,and permanent preventers on main boom. Aphrodite is a 1983 Maramu from Santa Cruz, Ca. USA. now in Fiji. I have lived aboard for 14 years with lots of blue water miles. What ever you do you will love your AMEL .

Thank you, yes all cables are being replaced and the wire halyard is being replaced with Dyneema - which means we also have to replace the original winch - all the best andy
