I have some photos of what remains of a fixture I found aft of my Jib/Genoa winch; this fixture is behind each of the winches. Any best guess would be appreciated.

Maybe a tiller pilot....wheel pilots don’t mount on the coming.They may be the attachment points for a "Wheel Pilot". Over time they wear out and are discarded/stored for future repair. Can you contact the seller?
I don’t run a spinnaker. I have a 130 Genoa. I installed Lewmar 40STs for the Gennie sheets and have Lewmar 8’s (I think) to the rear of the 40’s. I use these for Genoa Twings. Essentially they are a down haul for the Genoa sheets to change the sheets angle. I don’t have tracks/cars for the sheets so this is a way to do this. I use the system to decrease the upper twist off of the sail. Works great. The previous 40s where standard so I had jamb cleats already installed. I decided to leave them for flexibility and added two for the Twing winch’s. I very happy with the set up. It uses friction rings so you have to be paying attention when you tack because they can get whipping around.Thanks Mike. What's the set up on your Hunter 30, Self Tailing Winch straight from jib/genoa, or jib/genoa sheets through locking cheek blocks into the self tailing winches? Or another set up?
