Something is wrong with your sail if you have to install a mast gate to get the sail reefed. If the cringle can't reach the tack hooks, you can either install a dogbone through the cringle—a piece of webbing with rings on each end, to attach to the reefing hooks—or you need to add a jackline to the luff of your mainsail, which will allow the cringle to reach the hooks.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
