runner is on a distinguished road
The main halyard is gone and the lug that slides in the mast groove is gone also. The boom has a track, but the mast side of the sail has a top eye and that is it. There is a 3/8ths rope sewn into that side of the main. Canvas sails. It appears that the lug was sized so that it hit the sheave in the mast head before coming out of the top. The rope is simply draped over the sheave in the masthead. There is no provision for running the halyard back down the inside of the mast.
I will get pictures somehow tomorrow. Thanks for all the help!
I have 4 cleats around the edge of the cockpit. Two right behind the mast and two midway back in the cockpit. There is one additional cleat on the centerboard well and another on the back bottom of the mast. There are two line guides on the deck. There are no attachment points on the rear of the boat except for the rudder and the motor mount. Like I said, I will get pictures.
