teflongeoff is on a distinguished road
hey redrugbycat....jon
I have a 1985 mirage 27 too and yeah the boom setup is a little odd...so far it seems the outhaul is a double purchase inside the boom and that steel cable coming out the end of the boom to the(tack)to really tweek the foot...my setup is slab or jiffy reefing , single line running to the cocpit.....the teflon coated steel topping lift is actually a type of lazy jack/sailhandler where steel rings tyed to the leech slide up and down with the sail , I dumped them as I could not make them work for me ,doesnt seem to be a big enough sail to need them
