Yet another reefing line question

I have read a recent 4 page thread on an isomat boom. It discussed reefing lines and outhauls.

Our old 1984 boat had no reefing line installed and an old outhaul ine as well.

The foot of our main had no sail slides- the foot feels like wire which threads into the boom. My main point is I cannot tie the reefing line around the boom. (The main is new from North).

There are eyes on the bottom of the boom - I guess I could tie it there before going up throug a fitting on the side of the boom, then to the reefing cringle on the sail (and then into the aft part of the boom, etc.)

Does this sound right or am I missing something?

I am in the process of making a to-do list for the winter, etc.

Many Thanks, SaltyPat
