from an old naval fella, for yr gaff mainsail the flag halyard should
be attached: upper block to upper/outer end of gaff, lower
fastening to tack point of boom. for singlehanded adjustments,
bring the halyard back from the tack point along the boom, until you
can reach the fastening from the cockpit.
