Thanks for the pictures, so here is what i am thinking and have gathered. We have the pole and the mast attachment. rig the pole to the mast and to the sail, use the topping lift (which we do have) to hold the pole up and use our normal sheet winches to hold the pole down and back. And on the boom we can let the boom out and then rig a preventer from the end of the boom up to a pully near the bow and then back to the cockpit to a winch or a cleat. Sound right? Now is this only really used for strait down wind correct?
