I am about to rerig my mainsheet and am planning to increase purchase
to make life easier for my wife.
For quick stats: boom length 14 ft, luff 42 ft.
At the moment, I have a 4:1 purchase
using a fiddle block on the traveller side and two separate blocks on the boom - distributing the load over 2 points on the boom.
Going to a 6:1 purchase, I am planning on going for a triple block with cam (something like this):
Mauri Pro Sailing Lewmar 80mm Triple Ratchet w/Becket & Cam
..however on the boom, the only example of reeving this that I've seen is always the 90 degree funny
offset per the "6:1 reeved offset" example here:
The issue with this is that I would like to distribute the mainsheet load on the boom across at least
two points and preferably 3 points.
As far as I am aware however, using the triple block on the traveller end and trying to reeve the line to 3 separate blocks (in line) on the boom will cause twisting right?
Any ideas on making this work would be greatly
