pulleys and their uses.

My sloop rigged 23 foot american spirit has a pulley about 10 foot up the mast on the front. What is this pulley for?

Also, There is a line that runs next to the jib line. Instead of turning 90 degrees and hitting the pulley to the top of the mast, it takes a 45 and another 45. ending in the middle of the floor of the bow. What is this one for?

Thanks in advance!

Re: pulleys and their uses.

That sounds like a spinnaker pole lift (up the mast pulley) and a pole downhaul (off foredeck) for running a symmetrical spinnaker.

I don't follow what this one is doing.
