1970 Cal29 boom outhaul

Hi Everyone,
I am the new owner of an old Cal29 (1970) that I am fixing up.
I have finished the hull, installed the engine, raised the mast and now I'm ready to take the maiden voyage.
I am curious how the outhaul works on the boom. I see a cable dissappear into the end of the boom. I figured the Allen socket near the gooseneck tightens (outhauls) it but it seems to 'lock' or ratchet in that position. Is there a release somewhere that allows me to loosen the outhaul?

Thanks for you help! Mike
