My boat has a luff jackline up to the first reefing point, but not up to the second reefing point. I wanted to rig a second reef but did not want to modify the sail, so I removed the sail stop and replaced it with a mast gate that allows the lugs to fall all the way to the boom. They still stack up, but much lower than before.
