Swing keel raising RL24
My 24 has a very rusty keel raising winch which needs replacing but...

I would much rather install the block system which is described on this site in the diagrams section. However, I have contacted Ronstan and asked them to suggest current part numbers for the parts listed on the diagram but they cannot suggest alternatives.

Does anybody have part numbers, or just a photo of their set up, or suggestions for the appropraite blocks to use.

Tim, if you can print or copy the diagram shown and take it to Muir Marine at Manly (qld) I'm sure Ross or Jason will be able to come up with somthing to suit. ( maybe not the cheapest solution, but they do know their oats ).( pommy saying).
Good luck,

I have a block system on y Mark 1. It uses simple triple blocks and a cam cleat mounted under the cabin roof. Email me chris.conley@mac.com and I can send some photos.

its damn simple and it works for me

Re: Swing keel raising RL24
On our mark 3 we have a 7:1 system, 2 double blocks mounted inside the cabin top beside the mast support post and a triple block with becket attached to the top of the keel lift wire.
Current part #'s for the doubles are RF50200 and the treble RF 50210.
The 4 mm s/s wire passes through a sheave box, RF41712 or RF 31712 on the top of the centre case.
The lift rope passes through a dead eye on the cabin bulkhead and cleats in a clamcleat.
It works a treat.
email me hartships@spin.net.au if you would like pics.
