I have some boom gallows installed on my boat. Unfortunately, for some reason it is too high. Either the sail stretched or it is a different sail altogether, the boat is new to me.
I have three options: get a new sail, shorten the boom gallow, get rid of the boom gallow. I do have a topping lift installed.
Anyway, I'd be happy if the folks here who have boom gallows on their boats could comment on their usefulness and how exactly they use it, particularly when reefing.
It seems to me, there are not that useful, but I may be wrong.
