I suspect that the boat may have the trysail because the first owner did at least one Newport-Bermuda race and also sailed to the Med (back in the days when cruiser-racer meant you could actually do both). I could tie off the boom - would have to see how best to run the sheets to the aft quarters. Can't do that until we are back in Oz in another 5 weeks or so.
Do you run your sheets to turning blocks and then to the primary winches? I don't have convenient eyes for doing that I think.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
