Re: CS36 Outhaul

I find it hard to ease the outhaul in nicely controlled amounts when it is run directly with no mechanical advantage to a clutch. The main on my 29' boat is probably half the size of the main on your 36' boat.

With the 5:1 tackle on my boat it is pretty easy to make small adjustments.
