Cam, I don't see any problem with putting a cheek block on either side of the boom, one for each reef line. The slack lines along the boom can be controlled with padeyes or with the velcro straps that Giu mentioned. You can place the blocks in the optimum position to enable an effective outhaul angle for each reef point.

Do you plan to run the lines aft or cleat them forward on the boom?
