Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

Where is the upper end of that first tackle connected?? Could be a cunningham if it goes into a cringle 6 inches or so above the tack of the main. Not the best led arrangement but it could work.. btw your lines need a good cleaning!!

The triple blocks on deck are simply called turning blocks.
