Working on the boat

New brakes on a boat?

New Brakes

Yes, but just so you know we are talking about the rope brakes. These are devises attached to the deck that different lines pass through. They pull freely one way, but hold fast the other. On my stern I have five of them (2 for the dinghy davit lines, 2 for the traveler, and one for the main sheet) and one of the dinghy davit ones is falling apart, so I decided to replace all of them.

Well in order to get to 3 of them I had to have Scott (who is pencil thin) crawl into two different hold to get to the bolts. The final two (and the one that started this project) we will have to get to by taking a panel off the back of the boat, so we can get to the bolts.
