I have a question regarding rigging
a preventer on my Catalina
27. After doing some internet research
and speaking with some Gentleman sailors I've gathered that it is best to rig as far forward as possible to prevent or reduce negative loads on the boom. So far I'm thinking very primitive, ie: simple rigging
from boom(tip? question #1) to a block rigged forward (soft shackle around forstay? question #2) then back thru a cam cleat to the cockpit
. Question #4 is what happens when I accidentally gybe? Any major concerns or problems that I'm going to encounter would be greatly appriciated. I always like to learn as much as possible before attempting new stuff!
