Re: Reaching hooks for Spinnaker sheets?
A reaching strut holds the clew of a jib out when going downwind. The go from the clew to a fitting on the side of the mast.
The cleats you describe are likely for twings that hold the spinnaker guy down. There should be a floating block on the spinnaker sheets - pull down the one that is the guy and ease the one that is the sheet.
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
