We put these hooks on our Catalina 30
West Marine: Reefing Hooks Product Display

I tried them out yesterday in 30k and franky was not impressed. It was very hard to get the sail to hook into it.
The simplest solution would be to take them off and back into the shop and cut a half inch off the end. I donn't see why they have to be designed so so the sail is so hard to get hooked in.
Any ideas of how to rig reefing that is easy to do on the c30?
