North Power XTR 2 (response to John Florida)

Hello John;
Thanks for your reply.
I believe that I share your sentiments re this device tho I've not
used one yet. i.e. I too sail on a gusty lake and would like to be
able to adjust downhaul on the water, IF outhaul adustments don't cut
it.

Important questions for you:

1) Have you successfully resolved the slippage problems you were
having with the XTR 2 (as opposed to XTR 1) rotary cleat plate ? If
so, how so?... with the modified line you wrote about in a previous
posting.?

2) What is the end-to-end length of the lever on the XTR 2?

Clark,

1)   Yes, I have successfully resolved the slippage problems by
replacing the downhaul line with 4mm Marlow Excel Polyester Double
Braid (West Marine #4523130-purple) cut carefully (no rough edges,
etc. that increase the diameter of the downhaul line) with an electric
knife.  I have rigged 6-8 times with this line and am happy with it
(especially now that I know the electric knife "trick").

2)  The end-to-end length of my Power XTR I lever/crank is about 13
cm.  The distance between the center of the lever/crank's mounting
bolt to the end of the lever/crank is about 11 cm.

Please note that on this forum, we sometimes talk about several models
of the North Power mast extension.  I have the Power XTR I (42 cm
length) that I've upgraded with the new cleat/gear.  Others have the
Power XT.  Using the following web page as a beginning point, you may
want to check out the differences between the models.  I prefer the
XTR for large (e.g., Ezzy Infinity 10.5) sails (that I use with a sail
pulley).

Hope this helps,
John

John;
Although you state in the above posting that you have an XTR One,  I
understood from one of your previous postings some weeks ago, that you
have both the one AND the two. If this is so, do you find that, in
practice,  the longer lever on the two gives much more power than the
shorter lever on the older XTR One?

Clark,
Sorry for the miscommunication.  I have only the XTR One with an
upgraded cleat/gear.
