Can you really get enough tension by pressing down on the boom? I could see it working in light air when there's not the need for a lot of tension. Using that method, if the wind picked up and I needed to get more tension would I then take up on the Halyard with the winch? If I can find a good method without spending $$ I wouldn't mind giving it a shot.
The reason why I was looking at Sta-set or VPC was the low stretch factor. It seems to me that you want as little stretch as possible in the halyard, it wouldn't make much since in having a downhaul that stretched, but again, I'm quite new to all of this and I could be way off base. As for the blocks, looking around it doesn't look like there's anything else that is more cost effective, that is "rated" for that kind of application. Does anyone have a recommendations?
As for the camera, all of my photo's that day turned out the same way, the lense is clean and it normally takes pretty clear photo's even with a little motion. It's getting older and has been acting up lately, maybe it's time to replace that as well!
