Re: Any one know a thing or two about booms
You're getting it. IE easier to slide something across ice vs concrete. Water frozen at 32F is virtually free of all friction, rubbing etc. Colder ice has more friction.
So in the case of single vs double line reefing, which ever setup has les line rubbing on something that will not turn, ala in grommet vs a sheave, this is harder to pull and get line to go thru. After awhile, you can not pull the line easy, and you need more purchase or a winch.
