It's been a couple of weeks, but I've almost got my boom re-done - had to change the outhaul setup first to allow for the two reefs, #1 to Starboard and #2 to Port, taking way
longer than planned..
I know from an earlier thread
that it doesn't make much difference how far aft the turning blocks are, so long as they are well aft of the clew cringle, but is it Standard Practice (tm) to:
(a) Fix the turning blocks on either side of the boom at the same distance along the boom? Or should they be
(b) Staggered (ie. the same distance from the respective cringles)??
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
