Reply To: Dufour 1800 refurbishment – running lines plan and boom fitting

Mark Hillmann

    We also have an 1800. Ours had two lines to starboard when we got her, for the main and genoa halyards with stoppers and a winch.
    I added three lines to port to extend the two reefing lines and the topping lift to the cockpit.
    These had jammers under the boom and a cleat on the mast previously.
    I left the spinnaker halyard on the mast as we do not have one, but I am used to hoisting and lowering it from there.

    Like Stefan we also added a solar panel as the diesel had died and I replaced it with an electric outboard that fits nicely in the cockpit well and can be recharged from the main battery.
