I think I can remember some time back a member of this group suggested rollers sheaves on the traveller car provided a significant improvement in the ease of operation.

Has anyone carried out this modification and if so what hardware was used?

"After racing in 25 KTS with 30+ gusts, I found the effort high on the traveller control lines. Speaking with Lewmar indicated that changing the sheaves out to ball bearing sheaves was the recommended improvement. Done and it helps. The part number from Lewmar is LEW29472970 , it is for 4 sheaves, you need eight, so order two units of that part number.

GPS receiver upgrade

The original Raymarine 125 gps failed on my 2008 Oceanis 40.  Based on research, I’m trying to install a RS150 GPS receiver.  The 150 uses Seatalk NG vs. the boat’s antiquated Seatalk 1.  Not exactly sure how to tie the new GPS into the network.  I purchased a Seatalk1 to Seatalk NG converter block.  The Raymarine Tech on the Raymarine Tech forum has advised me to run a independent power feed to the converter block.  That’s about as far as I have gotten, waiting to get a call back from…See More
