Re: Where does this go...?

Why would you want to get it out of the way...?

Right now I have a fixed length lead with clip on the end of a steel TL line...I have to R&R it every time I raise or drop the sail, disconnect and move up to mast, bring it back and reconnect etc... PITA I think...

That's why I'm trying to come up with an adjustable one so I can leave it hook up all the time...

On my SJ21 I had a TL lift that was slightly longer than what trimming the sail would allow and just left it up all the time. IOW the TL would not interfere with sail trim. KISS.

Re: Where does this go...?

That's the goal, but the steel line coming down is a foot short of useable, so it needs some sort of extention to keep it on...

The fixed length leader I put on is a little short of your discription, hence the 2nd (3rd) try with adjustable...

This should also allow sail trim changes for light air and abilty to raise boom a foot higher at anchor...
