boom rigging 101

I've been using my 30' Morgan OI for a year and am certain the rigging on the boom is wrong. From the outhaul to the reefing pulleys. I have looked at many other boats and always zoom in on any photos but can't find the correct setup for Itinerant. I even asked some other Morgan owners to send a photo and hope one of them pans out so I can get it right. If anyone has a picture that would 'make my day'.
A man who is not afraid of the sea will soon be drowned, he said, for he will be going out on a day he shouldn't. But we do be afraid of the sea, and we only be drowned now and again.

Tell you what if you posted pictures of your boat to your CF gallery we could all take a look. I would ask why you think it is wrong and if it can not do something you think it should. It's possible to get jiffy reefing setup pretty bad. An out haul works or it does not as does a topping lift.
