Deck pad­eye

Yachting World - - New Gear -

“Our most re­cent pur­chase was a pair of deck padeyes and we have in­stalled them to pro­vide an­other sheet turn­ing po­si­tion for use with twin run­ning head­sails. We have used both Harken and Gibb fit­tings and both seem fine. The ex­tra padeyes were specif­i­cally for the long cross­ings where we ex­pected to be goose-winged or have the twin run­ning sails set. In prac­tice we car­ried that rig all the way across the Pa­cific and it all worked very well. In sum­mary you can never have too many padeyes!”
