10% off Harken at APS

I was browsing through some sailing supply websites this morning, and noticed that Annapolis Performance Sailing (APS) is running a promotion for all of March: 10% off all Harken hardware, and a free gift if you spend more than $100.  now would be a good time to upgrade your mainsheet block or other hardware!

for my upgrade to my Sunfish mainsheet block, I decided to use the Harken 2135 57mm carbo ratchet block with a Harken H150 cam cleat.

    M2F: Is that the usual place for the mainsheet cleat? I thought one on each side of the cockpit would be more practical,
    but I’m just a former Laser sailor. BTW, I can appreciate your distaste of AI, but you gotta work on the oysters!

      baydog, I’m not sure I’d trust many places in the Midwest to serve oysters the right way.

      as far as the cleat location – the standard Sunfish doesn’t come with a cleat, as far as I know. I’ve seen it placed on each side, but the usual words of wisdom I’ve heard is that you shouldn’t keep the mainsheet in a cleat, but in your hand to play the sail trim.

      my single H150 on the cockpit lip is usually only used in very light air, or very briefly if I need a drink of water or something.

      plus, mounting them on each side would make them a hazard to the underside of my legs as I’m sitting forwards up on the edge hiking out.
