if you mean the rope going through the cleat at the base of the swivelling mainsheet cleat, it is the spinnaker halyard-retrieval line.

The things I like about this system for one up sailing are.

Mainsheet is always in front of you.

Easy cleating, uncleating from anywhere on the boat tramp or trapeze.

It keeps the spinnaker sheet back where it is easily grabbed.

Mounting the spin halyard cleat at the base of the main cleat keeps it close to hand, making cleating and uncleating easy from the back of the tramp.

Thanks. Is the under tramp beam for/aft and did you add it?

the under tramp beam is for and aft. I added it after one of the Taipan sailors showed me how he had lifted his tramp at the back, to improve clearance by lacing to the front of the back beam.

The Mosquito's have this beam in thier rules, so I was used to having it there and attaching the swivelling cleat to it, so I thought once I had raised the tramp it would be easy to put a similar beam on Altered. Of course it also helps keep the tramp higher.

Regards Gary.

My PT was set up the same way as Altered (without the spinny sheet) but I decided that fitting to the oval main beam on my aipan project was a hard one. Have you fed into the track or secured to the beam itself?
