Re: Adding a topping lift
If you do add a fixed topping lift with a boom end tackle, you may want to lead that line forward along the boom.. I'm guessing your boom is quite long and a boom end tackle may be hard to reach at times.
Lead it forward to where your reefing lines are handled so you can do it all from one station. If your reef lines are led aft already then having the TL adjustable from THAT location makes most sense.
