Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

I definitely mean a tack strap to adjust the height of the tack - not really a downhaul. Sorry for the confusion. I was concerned that I might mess with the mast rake if I moved the furler back to the ram's horn position. I don't use the horn at all, so I wouldn't miss it a bit. Maybe that's the best plan...

I was also trying to figure out whether I could make some kind of a loop that goes on each side of the rams horn and around the front of the furler, then attach a block on it. I think there's too high a chance of it falling off though since the ram's horn isn't really captive.
