Re: another a sail question
So I'm still a tad confused? Do I just attach this line to the tack or, I also have a tacker/strop, to go around my jib furler. do I use the tacker and attach the line to that. The line is about a foot and a half long and attached to a fixed point. or do I want a tack line that is led back to the cockpit so I can use the tacker and raise and lower the tack? Still have not raised the sail yet but might get a chance to today. If I use the tacker and attach said line to it , the tack would be about a foot and a half up the furler, if I just use that tack line alone then the tack would be about a foot and a half off the bow of the boat or I could use the tacker and attach a new tack line to it and through a block and back to the cockpit and be able to adjust the tack however I want. Just trying to see how the prievous owner was using it although he was in his upper 80's and some people I met that knew him said he never even used the spinnaker once.(brand new sail for me). Any help appreciated. I'll get a pic up later today.
