Outhaul advice

I bought a used Beneteau 361 in late summer. When I went to reef the main during high winds this fall, I discovered that the previous owner had rigged the reefing line as the outhaul -- and that there was no outhaul. The rigging book that came with the boat shows no outhaul, either. I've got plenty of extra sheaves at the gooseneck, turning blocks at the mast step and extra rope clutches in the cockpit to rig an outhaul. Any advice on how much purchase (3:1, 4:1) I should rig? Any advice on easy ways to install this in the boom?

Thanks. I can't believe the boat didn't come with some arrangement like this. Maybe when I get into the boom I'll find a "dormant" rig like one of these.

I'd agree that the boat must have included a proper outhaul when built. You should find a tackle/mystery box in the boom for an outhaul. If you haven't you might get on the Beneteau board and see if you can get advice/pictures from another 361 owner.
