Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

By downhaul, are you meaning an actual downhaul for pulling on the head of the sail to get it down in higher winds, or are you meaning a strap for the tack in order to adjust the height of the tack whilst flying the sail? I'm going to assume the latter. You could probably get away with putting a pin through one of the holes in the furler mounting plates and attaching a strop to that with a block on the end. Or alternatively, do you use the rams horn fitting behind the furler? If not, you could probably move the furler back to that fitting and then you would have a free hole in the stem fitting to attach a block to. Shouldn't make much if any difference to the furler, might need to tweak the forestay a bit.
