Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: wire halyard


As reel halyard winches and wire halyards are antique technology, fairly dangerous to operate ( especially by anyone unfamiliar with the tendency they have to remove teeth ) replacement with a stronger modern specialty rope halyard and a self-tailing winch makes absolute sense.

Thoughtful, well consider modifications to elder Amel’s can be a good thing and the experienced sailors in this group will not hesitate to provide guidance. None of us have a real opinion about anything, you might have noticed!

Have fun with your Amel.

All The Best, Joel

Similar boat (LOL)...I've also received advice to replace but hesitant.

Has anyone done this on a Maramu or Sharki (mine is a 82 Maramu).
