With the 5:1 tackle on my boat it is pretty easy to make small adjustments.
Mine is a little bit larger than the OP's it's 38'
The 1:1 outhaul go through a clutch to a winch.
If easing under load is a problem just take some turns on the winch drum before opening the clutch. Adjust and close the clutch.
