Re: SN, SM, & 54 owners: If your outhaul line has ever slipped, this is a great idea
Very interesting Bill. The amount of tension required to avoid the line slipping has always been a concern. Who knows when we’ll be back on board. But I will take a look and see if its something we would pursue.

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] SN, SM, & 54 owners: If your outhaul line has ever slipped, this is a great idea
The photo below is of an Amel 55. I have been aboard several 55's but never really noticed the fairleads near the outhaul winch. The way these fairleads are placed causes the outhaul winch to have a much better grasp of the outhaul line. If we could make this change on models previous to the 55, we could reduce the amount of tension on the outhaul line.
If anyone is so inclined to take on this project I will be happy to assist.
It would be a perfect job with cutting, welding, and painting, but maybe there is a much simpler way to accomplish this.
