To continue this then, since I am dealing with the same thing myself right now.

I have a new main coming.. they asked me rope or loose foot.. I said loose foot, so that I could get shape.

Now - I should still have 2 slugs in it? fore and aft?

The clew of my current main has a large eye to attach an outhaul, but it was bolt roped into the boom slot.

SO I could find a car? or slug that will fit my slot, attach the clew to it, and then run it back?

Now I was in the same situation.. none adjustable outhaul. I have a padeye at the end, and a little cleat 12" back up the boom.

I want it adjustable - Harken has good shots of this? I am more looking for an image I can duplicate.

This is a Grampian 26 - so about 4-5" dia boom not very big.

Thanks
James
