Thumbs down S2 6.7 boom question

I'm new to sailing, have a 6.7 and I think I have everything in place but I am wondering about the boom. There are 2 lines on either side of the boom at the gooseneck, travel through cam cleats, through the boom and exit thru the aft fitting on the boom. I've perused the available literature and I think they are part of a reefing system. The boom also has small u-shaped fittings (are they bails?) that seem to correspond with the reef points on the main. In addition, there is a small cleat (conventional type with 2 horns) on the under side of the boom. Some of this may pertain to a cunningham that is missing, and some pertain to reefing but I'll be damned if I can figure out how the reefing system works. I did run on of the internal boon lines up and thru a reef grommet and back down to the corresponding bail but its still a mystery. Would you do your reefing at the gooseneck? Are there any pictures? Pictures would help a lot.
Thanks
