I don't think I have a leach line. I'm pretty sure I'd have noticed that, but I'll look again.
I know the topping lift is slack. I know that because I forget it every time I raise the main. I get to sailing, look up and say "Damn, forgot the topping lift again". Then I point her back into the wind and release the topping lift.
Now, about this leach line . . . I can't tell from the photo, but it looks to be embedded in the leach of the sail. Is that right? Also, it doesn't look like the cleat mentioned is on the boom. Where is it?
It looks like that sail has some plastic accoutrements attached to it. Mine does, too, with nothing attached to them. Is that for the leach line?
Edit: Giulietta, I've been lurking a while and feel like I know you. I love your sense of humor. Thanks for the help. SailingDog, I've read a lot of your posts, too. Thank you.
