Use the diagram below to reference Harken part numbers to appropriate application on your J/80sailboat. Parts recommendations are offered as a guide for common applications.
With two Carbo fiddles and a pendant (yellow) to reduce the mainsheet's length, the 5:1 system is a combination of low weight and high power. The adjustable 75 mm Carbo Ratchamatic's® ratchet instantly engages to carry higher loads, but disengages quickly during mark rounding, jibes and light-air situations. A swivel base allows cleating from any direction.
The mainsheet traveler system uses Harken's award-winning CB traveler car. Captive ball bearings are extremely low-friction and enable effortless car cleaning and installation. The double-ended control line has a 2:1 purchase, making the system simple and very fast.
A double-ended 4:1 purchase makes this split backstay adjustable. As the ring is pulled down, two high-strength wire blocks tighten the backstay by pinching the legs of the bridle together. The system is quick and powerful, and the fixed wires keep the mast tensioned even if the 4:1 is released.
