Re: Why use a topping lift
I have an adjustable block and line on the end of my topping lift
Nice to raise the boom at dock for extra headroom
Can be let down after sail is up with slight slack line
Is already attached to boom when it's time to reef and I got other things on my mind...
I had a fixed length topping lift, didn't like it would either forget to remove it after sail was up (poor sail shape) or it would go flying loose at the most inopportune times, or I'd forget to attach it and drop the boom when reefing or dropping sail
"Might as well take 'er out...If anything is gonna happen...It's gonna happen out there..."
