Re: New owner

I put a boom kicker vang on my B30. It is relatively inexpensive, and does away with the topping lift. Its nice to have the boom free supported when cruising. another way to secure your reef line is to tie it around the boom. You need either a loose foot main or a grommet in the foot to pass the reef line through. On my original main, I just didnt put the bolt rope on the foot into the slot on the boom. I needed to do a loose foot because the shackle on one of the main blocks broke in a gibe and I had to lash the block on. Worked well and when I bought a new main, they made it loose footed.
