Deck Hardware

On-deck equipment for sailboats

- These products belong on every boats deck -

The rig

Also known as the mast with its standing and running rigging - is the heart of any sailing vessel and must be fully functional. Besides the sails, this catagory includes items such as shrouds/wire cables that hold the mast upright, furlers, blocks, eye plates, pulleys, as well as repair kits for the sail. The furlers are either attached to the mainsail, where they are intalled either on or in the mast, or they are attached to the foresail, where they are installed on the forestay or used as a forestay replacement. They reduce the overall surface area of the sail. In most cases, the sails must be cut according to the furlers in order to optimally reef.

The deck of the ship is virtually the roof of the boat, meaning that the upper works belong to it as well. In order to optimally sail a sailboat, the deck must be equipped with the following accessories, amongst other things:


Winches bear the tensile forces of the halyards and sheets. For halyards (the lines that pull the sail up on the mast), the winches are attached either directly to the mast or to the cockpit with deflected halyards.

Tracks, cars and traveller systems

Genoa cars serve to lead the jib sheet to the winch. One can adjust the fairleads position by moving the car on the track to alter the sail's shape (move the genoa lead to change the power of the foot and leech of the genoa).

Mooring lines/cleats

Cleats are mainly located at the bow and stern, where they securely fasten the ship while at port. A cleat in the middle of the ship, serves as a spring line cleat, which is a diagonal attachment of the vessel while docked that secures the ship against forward and backward movement caused by wind or waves.

Ich bin mit der Liefergeschwindigkeit zufrieden! Ich bin nicht zufrieden, weil ich den ersten Einkauf nicht mit einer Kreditkarte bezahlen konnte, sondern zur Bank gehen musste, um mit einer Überweisung zu bezahlen.
