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?

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
