Rigging a tack for a drifter

Yes, but it''s off center. That would affect trim slightly, but probably not enough to really notice. My initial concern was that it may not take the upward force very well, but it''s worth a try.

And, of course, I have to make sure the luff and the sheets don''t get tangled in the bow nav light mounted on the pulpit. As they say, every boat is a compromise...
