My understanding is it's against class rules to have a clutch aft of the cabin top winch. What do people use to lock down the halyard and keep the winch available for switching to the jib halyard and allow easing ?

I just use the cleats on the mast, also with the winch.

Thanks for the reply Peter, What did you use to mount it ? What kind of backing plate? Fender washers ?

It was on the boat already when I bought it. I thought I had some pictures but not of that... and I'm not close to the boat now. As I recall they have used fender washers but I'm not sure.
