Kenyon boom, outhaul, and reefing lines
I have the same boom as this gentleman. Problem is, when I bought the boat, it was on the hard so all the rigging was disconnected. The wire on the center roller is for the outhaul. 1 end has a shackle for the sail. The other end has a block on it and was hanging-not inside the boom where it belongs and not attached to anything. I am not sure how to get it back in there or what to attach it to. Any thoughts? oh wait- dangerous question. Any guidance as to how to proceed in rigging the boom as it was designed to be? Also, a rigging diagram for the reefers. Thanks.
