R36 Mainsail Reefing

Posted: 9 Jan 2009 - By:
I have just become the owner (keeper?) of a Rival 36 with a very worn and neglected mainsail. Because this has to be replaced before too long I'm considering my options.
In the past I have used the Harken battcars on the mast and reefed from the cockpit with considerable success but, with the R36 having her mainsheet track on the coachroof this looks far from easy.
I'd love to hear from anyone who has lead their reefing lines back to the cockpit in their R36 or experience of Harken battcars or other types on this class.
