The three halyards on the Stb are Furling
lift, spinnaker and mainsail.
On the port they are Genoa
, cunningham and topping lift.
But now I have to more lines on each side, which are hand hauls lashed in with cam cleets. And they are the 1st and 2nd reefs
and the mainsail 1st and 2nd outhauls. I do need a 3rd outhaul
but for now I just pull off the 2nd and put on the 3rd eye. I haven't really needed to reef that 25% yet. But if I were going offshore
I would definatly get it rigged.
As well, on deck
I have downhaul for the spinnaker pole and halyard for the furling
The boom vang
is rigid with a cam cleet and can be reached from gangway
and I use a boom brake
, which is a life saver, I wouldn't go without ever again especially with 375 sq.ft. mainsail.........._/)
