Re: Yet another what is this rigging question.

I'd vote with Capt. Flood on this one. On a Cal 29 you could use the mechanical advantage the block provides to keep the pole under control without necessarily having to have a huge winch back aft to trim it with. Depends a bit on how long the line is, and where it leads.
