Re: Boom Line Set Up?

Ted, yes a picture is worth a thousand words. I did use the picture you sent along with some others I pulled up as a guide. When I was at WM yesterday I spoke to a customer who sails that didn't think the main sheet went to the bottom ring of the boom as it looks like it does in the picture you showed.

I'm going to add several other pictures I have and any advice or suggestions would be a big help.

There was a couple connections missing and I temporarily just tied the line to the top of jib. Yesterday I purchased some and although they aren't like the one pictured I think they'll work. The original looks like it was tied with a string to the brass looking connector.

Thanks a bunch.
