1971 Cal 27(Jense mar) RIGGING

I am currently working on a project sailboat and came across something I can not find on the internet. When I was sailing I could not figure out where to connect the jib to in the bow of the boat. There does not seem to be a hood roller furling system or it is just missing? Not sure if it is missing something or I am just simply doing it wrong. attached are some pictures of the items in the bow. There is also a picture of a part that says Hood on it. what is this used for and what is it called? I looked up rigging hardware and can't find it anywhere. There are also two hooks that I have not a clue what they are for they are in the first image. Thanks for your time and I hope someone can help me out really soon!

Re: 1971 Cal 27(Jense mar) RIGGING

Great Lapworth Cal. I have a 2-27 - 1978. It was raced quite often requiring changes of head sails. The Hood item is the pre feeder to accomplish these changes. You probably have an old Hood split drum furler. You are missing the split drum. Check the luffs of head sails onboard and maybe the drum? For racing, the split drum was customarily removed.
Hope this helps.
