Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Interesting way of doing it. I've never seen it done that way, I've always seen the controll lines led along the boom. This way is simpler, and les noisey and causes fewer holes in the mast!

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Nice video, but I have to ask...what are the blocks on the mast for that you installed?? Normally on a lazy jack system you attach pad eyes at the mast and put the blocks in the Ys of the system.
