B-27 Solo Setup

Took my 1975 27' out on the Chesapeake Bay over the weekend for the first time. Was great...one of my first mods though is going to need to be to route the Halyards into the cockpit. Eventually it would be nice to get the cunningham and the outhaul in there too, but that's minor.

My mast is already stepped and I don't plan on taking it down this year...any thoughts or pictures on getting some blocks at the base of the mast?

I really what people have done by putting that metal plate with attachment points under the mast base...but I just don't see myself doing that this year. When I take my mast down there are tons of things I need to do to it so it's a bigger project.

Sorry for the tangent...any thoughts? Padeyes on the deck? Right into the mast? Pics?

This is an old post, but, I thought I would add my $.02. If you have a reefing hook at the tack, you will have trouble reefing with the halyards led aft. You will want to have both the halyard and reefing at the mast, or both in the cockpit.
