Rigging Help

Thanks KeelHaulin, my setup is the standard as you described, double-block with becket on the traveler, and 3 singles mid-boom. After posting my help-request, I went out to the boat and experimented, and I think I'm one off from the setup you described...I think I went from the becket to the aft most block first, then moving forward to the middle block, then to the foremost...it works, but I'll run it as you described.

...or maybe it's not critical? It seems like you can find just about any permutation of any setup imaginable as you look from one boat to another. I had a marine diesel guy look at my 5411, the way it was set up in the Newport, ...looked at my Newport manual, and shook his head and said he'd never seen anything like it, though he had seen plenty of 5411's in his day.

Thanks again,
Stenn
