Hi everybody,

I am the happy owner of a 470e. Looking at doing some modes to this beautiful Hanse to get her slightly more race ready for club racing and some offshore racing. 

We are interested in fitting in a permanent bowsprit to be able to have a decent aSail and Code 0/PFR setup. We will retain the self tackin jib for cruising and we are playing with the idea of designing a 110% jib to make use of the side tracks and last but not least as a start we want to replace the existing furler with a below-deck furler.

If anyone out there has experience on any of the above it would be great to hear your thoughts.

We have several other mods coming but this is the beginning ;)

I have a 430e and was not impressed with the self tacker. I replaced it with 104% jib that I use with the side tracks. Sailing performance is better but depending on the sailing angle, I need to route the sheets either through the shrouds, or around them. Not that big of a deal I guess. 

I'm also not impressed with the Facnor furling unit as it's extremely difficult to furl the sail and I plan on changing that this year. 

Lastly, I think I'm going to try moving the deck mounted blocks via "strops" closer to the underside of the boom to see what that does when trying to center the boom. I saw that on this site somewhere but can't recall the exact posting.

This is from a slightly larger Hanse model of the same era.  I took the picture because I thought it might work on the 470 also.  There is a bob stay down to an eye bolt fitted to the steel stem plate.
