    Main halyard locks

    Had halyard locks on a 30ft race cat from NZ Spars and rigging. Absolutely faultless. Just needed a slug in the halyard for each reef

    Need cars for my main sail

    The ronstan car design may have changed a bit but I'm betting the track is still the same. Measure the track dimensions and then look at what cars they have available

  10. In NZ, after X Factor, there was the 50' Crowther Triple Eight. Technically it had a cabin, but there was nothing in it. After that fast multis moved towards smaller and lighter with the 8.5's and the foilers. edit - 888 was built in the US, cant think of any other big race multihulls built down here recently outside of the Americas cup boats
