L17 Horseshoe Claw

Post by clarkejo »

Hi folks - I'm looking for a horseshoe claw for my L17 which has the original roller reefing on the mainsail.
I plan to upgrade to slab reefing when I change the sails, but i'm hoping to get another season with the existing sails.
Happy to pay cost and shipping.
Thanks.

You can still get them from a chandeliers.

Here's one example
or perhaps from here.
- Note: I've not bought from either of these, so it's not an endorsement.

I may be able to help as we now have slab reefing and sre not usinf ours. However it might be more cost effective to source one locally.
I'd need to find out where ours came from and what it cost.

Thanks guys.
On reflection, I might bite the bullet and convert to slab reefing.
Another winter project !
