Hi Colin.  That was in response to Paul's suggestion to lead the sheet back to a turning block (like the spinnaker's) and then back up to the winch.  I prefer your idea to fit a stainless wear strip so I will try that first.

Again, thanks for you help

Hello David
You could do what I did if you have the means. That is to purchase a 1m length of 3/4" bore, 316, thick wall, water pipe. Cut it into 3 and slit one length into quarters. One of these makes a wear strip which is secured with c/sunk self tappers. The pipe is quite soft to bend and you will have enough  for 12 boats.

p.s. it looks quite smart too

I fitted a shorter version of this...

a couple of years ago with a couple of self-tapping screws, works a treat.

As you say it's only needed on one side.

I called Jeremy Rogers Chandlery and they sell a custom wear strip so I have purchased one for £35 inlc carriage and VAT.  I will let you all know how I get on with it!

best wishes
