My main is currently set up with three slab-reefing points and one winch on the starboard side of the boom without any way to cleat off the clew lines. It looks like some hardware may have been removed in an attempt to allow reefing from the cockpit. Would it be a bad idea to run the three clew lines through a triple rope clutch between clew and winch? Do these fail/jam often? Also, is the winch necessary/helpful?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
