Re: Topping lift loads?

yeah thats why Im a fan of those pig tail thingies...I wouldnt change anything on said boat but if the op wants a topping lift thats cool too

like I said one size down or 2 for the topping lift compared to the MAIN sheet is a good conservative solution

or one size down from halyard...

or dyneema
or wire

or you can make one of those classic boom stands like on old boats

or add a boom kicker

or make a hard dodger and tie the boom to that

the list is endless!
