Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Replace shackle on main outhaul car SM 2003

Hi gang,

For what it is worth, I have removed many shackles and replaced them with Dyneema soft shackles. The noise is reduced and it feels like tacks are softer… maybe just my delusional self!

GL to all.

Nice, Alex!  If (when) I have to do this, I will look again.  So it looks like you could change the shackle without removing the car from the track?

Thanks for all the nice pictured instructions!  You're hired!

The shackle on the outhaul has developed the well
known crack in the welded bar. Can I remove the pin that
holds the shackle in place whilst the car is still on the
boom or do I have to remove it using the Amel provided short
piece of track.
ThanksJohn SM #391
