Kent, The black doughnut section that comes out extends inside the aluminum
housing. Drill and tap through the housing into the black section and
insert a set screw. Pat SM123

I'm glad you asked that, Mark. I've been taping mine with electrical tape
which didn't last long, then most recently with a couple layers of duct
tape covered with electrical tape which is lasting a little longer. I'll be
interested to hear what others have done.

The black donut mizzen furling knob that wraps the socket for the winch
handle is loose. I always have to push it back in before/after
furling/unfurling my mizzen. Not a major problem but annoying nonetheless.

I asked the Amel guys in Guadeloupe to fix this, which I think they tried
by using glue of some sort. But it came loose after a couple of weeks.

Has anyone else has this problem? Is there a good fix?

Thanks in advance,
