There is no good way to do a true single line reefing system without the Jig- blocks inside the boom. Each line needs its own amount of loading and each line requires a different amount of line pulled in. The jig-blocks in your boom are supposed to accommodate those differences and reduce the amount of line that you have to haul in.
The problem with any single-line reefing system is that frictional losses really makes them way less efficient and less reliable than a double line system systems. You would be way ahead of the game going to a double-line system. Whatever you do you will also be way ahead of the game running the lines inside the boom if you have that option.
