Thanks again. That's what I was looking for. I'm missing a secondary main and jib halyard so will have to rig those in the future when I go up the mast. Also, when you say secondary jib halyard, is that masthead or down lower? I have two sheaves below the streaming light on the mast. One is a few inches above the other and neither are direct centerline. One i'm sure is for the spinnaker pole lift. The other I believe is for a staysail or storm jib which can be rigged on my removable inner forestay. I'm wondering if this it's what you mean by secondary jib halyard. I was thinking to raise a second jib on the foil I would use the secondary spinnaker halyard before I peeled the first away.

I like how you've run the checkstays. Mine currently has a four to one fiddle system in place and I was thinking of going to the way you suggested which is how we ran an Express 37 I raced on. One tackle would go to the foreguy and the second could go to the boom preventer.

Do you still have the Perkins 4.108 in it?
