Beating into a 15+ knot breeze with a reef in my main and my genoa furled 10% when there was a sharp crack. I took a quick look, saw nothing, released the genoa sheet, and tacked. The stays and shrouds were intact, but after a minute of looking around, I discovered that the reefing line/spinnaker tack line double clutch had ripped out of the deck.  Spent the next days doing a repair to properly throughbolt the double clutch which required cutting into the headliner and reaching into impossible places to secure the bolts.

Beating into a 15+ knot breeze with a reef in my main and my genoa furled 10%, there was a sharp crack of something breaking.  I took a quick look, saw nothing, released the genoa sheet, and tacked. The stays and shrouds were intact, but after a minute of looking around, I discovered that the reefing line/spinaker tack line double clutch had ripped out of the deck.  Spent the next several days working on through bolting the clutch, cutting through headliner and getting nuts and bolts into unreachable places.
