Pearson 30 Outhaul

Can someone tell me how the outhaul is rigged on a Pearson 30 (or send a picture)? My "new" old boat did not have one. There are two pulleys on the side of the boom, but I'm not sure whether they are used for this.

Thanks,

Bill

The pulleys on the side of the boom are most likely for slab/jiffy reefing lines. outhauls are generally led through blocks in the end of the boom, inline with the sailtrack/slot at the top of the boom.

A picture would help a lot... get your post count up so you can embed a picture.

outhaul question

hi bill,

i have a pearson 30 hull # 346 that i bought about a year ago and mine has a kenyon boom with the outhaul run internally through the boom with a 3/1 purchase and 1/4" line leading out of the front of the boom to a turning block(pulley) and on the aft end a wire that goes around a pulley and then to a captive-pin shackle that attaches to the clew of the main. i just recently replaced the wire line and shackle and can give you the sizes if you want.

i don't know what type of boom you have or if you can run it internally but that is an option for you. hope the info is helpful.

enjoy the boat. i love mine.

andy

Our P30, hull #914, is rigged the same way as Andy's, with the exception that, coming back, the outhaul goes through a Spinlock cleat and then a small block. It's a fast and handy system for sail tweaks, but that ^!$!@! Spinlock cleat is right over the top of the companionway when the boom is centered and I've grazed my noggin on it more than once .

Here's a picture that shows part of it:



The blue line forward of that is the reefing line, which comes out of the boom on the starboard side up there.

That's about what mine looks like (#393) - but there's a lot more line on it when the outhaul is taut, due to ??:1 purchase.
