Re-rig topping lift
My Topping lift is a pain in the butt. It clips to the boom end, then runs into the mast and out to a cleat on the mast about three feet off the roof. Its a tiny cleat and I don't trust it. Obviously, the long term option will be to run the line through a block at the base and aft to the cockpit. However, I will need to install another clutch, and I am not ready to do that right now. So, how about a temporary solution of an adjustment on the boom end. Is there a standard set up for that? Some kind of block and tackle or carb block? Any personal favorites welcome too. I am sure I could whip something up that will work, but I like to hear suggestions first.
