This may be old news to most of you guys, but I just installed the greatest new accessory for the H20 ....

HARKEN 57mm CARBO RATCHAMATIC 8:1 LOW-PROFILE MAINSHEET SYSTEM from murrays.com

It makes a huge difference. When the hull would come up, and I uncleat, I used to really fight that 6:1 .... now it's easy and I feel a lot more in control, as I can make much smaller changes without spoiling the thrill of the ride. This really should have been standard equipment on this ride.

Just an FYI, you're old mainsheet system was most likely a 7:1 since that was stock on the 20. Even so, the 7:1 takes a strong pull, and if you were actually 6:1, that would be a whole lot of pull.

Also, 7:1 is the max allowed by the class rules.
