Re: [SJ-24] "Winchers"
- I put them on my boat this year and they are pretty good. They really are not self tailing, however if I put 4 winds around the winch they do hold the line without using the cleat. In windy conditions, or with the genoa, I wrap the line in the grove on top for extra holding power.
Either way I have not used the cleats at all this year. Makes it easier to tack especially when I'm single handed.

- I did on my last boat and just bought two for the jib sheeet winches on my
San Juan. They worked great for me as a casual sailor. Some of the guys on the
site who are avid racers may have another opinion, but I like them.
