Re: Gennaker downhaul on CS27

Gotcha, so I'd maybe just put a shackle through one of the holes in the furler fitting and get an amsteel strap that reaches just above the furler, and then have a block on the end of that. Then run a line from the tack, through the block and back to wherever you want to adjust it from. The ATN should take most of the strain, the strap/block etc should just allow you to then adjust the height. That's going to be the easiest and is likely to be plenty good enough, I've seen setups where they just had a twisted line between the uprights on the pulpit and that worked OK.
