[i]... I do wish the cam was easier to release. Maybe a slightly larger cam?
My wife was having the same difficulty with her boat. She is a beautiful tall slender lady but does not have a lot of upper body strength. Not that I'm comparing you to my wife, Gwiz. I have no idea if you're beautiful or not.
I moved her main sheet cleat from the crossbar back to the flat spot on the hull just ahead of the mesh covered storage pocket. I added a wire fairlead and a wedge block under the cleat. She now has no trouble at all cleating and uncleating. Having the cleat so much closer gives her a lot more leverage on it.
We have also found an unintended benefit as well. Having the two cleats separated by about 16" the lines have less of a tendency to get tangled up. I have thought about doing the same thing to my boat. But I may want to use that spot for a future modification or addition.
When not yanking on them, I have found that my "Gwiz" spray shield is nice place to lay the lines to keep them clear and handy.
Sorry if I high-jacked this thread. Not really a post on capsizing other than to say that after many attempts I have never been able to capsize my AI. And I've flipped many catamarans. I know how it's done.
When we first got our AI's I wanted to know if this could happen to my wife. That would cast a dark cloud on any future sailing for her. I can happily report that her AI has never scared her. She has never been afraid of going out in ANY conditions. And we have been out on the river when all other boats have long headed for safety.
The only reports of AI capsizing I have heard about have been accompanied by aka brace failures. Which reminds me, I have to order some spare parts.
