Comments about Forespar #6 One-speed Marelon Winch:

This seems to be perfect for the jib sheets on our Precision 18. it previously had cam cleats which could not be released easily in a heavy gust. Now we can sail in windy conditions without fear of a knockdown. After seeing the simplicity and functionality of this design I would not chose a more expensive winch for costal cruising.
