Thanks Faster.

I just went out and measured the pole. It's 7 feet long and extends to about 14 feet.

If I understand you correctly you don't think that a topping lift is required?

Would I just feed the jib sheet through the sheave and lead it back to the cockpit?

Could the hook end be the part that fits into the clew cringle? If so, what is the point of the sheave?
