Lagoon 40 - Reef Line Chafe

I recently bought a new Lagoon 40 (Hull 45), and sailed her back from France to the BVI. I absolutely love the boat - it has performed extremely well, and almost 5,000 miles its had a good sea trial! I am seeking other Lagoon 40 owners - admittedly there aren't too many out there yet, to see if they are having chafe problems with the single-line reefing system. on our transatlantic trip, we chafed a few lines quite quickly. The issue seems to be very close tolerances at the boom sheave (mast end), combined with some tight angles between the sheave, carbon ring on the sail, and fairlead on the mast. I have found a solution that seems to work by adding a block, but i am interested in hearing from other owners to see if this is a common issue or a "one off".

Thanks!
Neil
