Hmm Cool
The only time I was in conditions that warranted reefing, it was at the end of the day and I was pooped(tired haha) so I just dropped all sail and Seagulled to my camping place so i've only tried it in the yard right setting the boat up for the first time, the boom seemed to hang down at the end quite a bit when it was rolled up ,The Vang seems to help and there was a very sturdy point at the base of the mast to hook it to, perhaps i'll look into getting some reef points sewn in or do it myself
Any other opinions would be appreciated too
