Re: S/V East Coast Lady make her 1st trip in 4 years under sail
congrats on your first outing!
Halyard must never be let loose. when ever I take it off the main I make sure it's secure at both ends, with some kind of tension. it's amazing how quick a line will run through to the end when you least expect it.. like "oh.. I just let it dangle while I flake the main"... ZIP! 40 + feet in the air she goes!
Topping lift or the line that holds the boom up should always be released or slack. Some boats with Boom struts like yours has use a simple cable and hook, on the back-stay for "parking" the boom.
