Melges 20 Mainsheet
The lightweight, but powerful 4:1 mainsheet system uses four all-composite
T2™ Loop blocks to lead line to a 75 mm switchable ratchet block
on a cockpit-mounted swivel base. The composite sheave spins freely on
ball bearings with curved bearing races. Sideplates are fiber-reinforced,
high-strength nylon resin.
Melges 20 GNAV
This upside-down, reverse-thrust vang system creates more space in the
cockpit, greatly increasing crew mobility. With one end of the gnav system
attached to a bracket on the mast and the other to a track and ball bearing
car on the boom, the skipper uses the mainsheet to easily adjust leech
tension under load.
