any comments on line clutches...

Looking at Defender right now. Lewmar triple DCI for about 165... 10mm to 12mm to replace my old clutches. The old ones (may be Lewmar) are just worn out and don't hold the line any more. Not terrible, as I tend to wrap my main halyard around the winch a bunch of times to "lock" it, and tend to do the same with the mainsheet (at the other side of the cabin top.)

But the clutches also hold my stays'l sheets... and they are slipping.

No doubt new mounting holes are probably the order of the day... sigh.
