As you have been given good advice above, I'll offer a sailing caution based on your blog's picture...always remove any slack from your reefing lines...you wouldn't want a loop to catch a head during a gybe, especially after all this work...
Not to get too far off topic, or intentionally embarass myself, but that was my second time sailing the boat, and I barely knew what reefing was at that time

To be honest, I am not sure how to reef this boat's main yet. The PO did some very unique customizations... Things which were... How shall I say it? Creative! So the original reefing system is probably not rigged properly. That's going to be one of the summer projects... One of MANY!
