- Mar 1, 2010Oh, hell, Lee, I'm just too butt-lazy to put my drink down and go forward to the mast when it gets to blowing 25k. If I could reef with my TV remote I'd do it in a heartbeat.
BTW, I use 5/16" Sta-Set for my single-line system.

I have a single line reefing system thanks to Carters Knowledge ! I used ball bearing blocks attached to the sail cringles and on the boom to lead the line
to the spar and down to the collar blocks and on to the deck-house turning blocks to a rope clutch.
I have two rope clutches one blue main halyard and one red reef lines together.
Makes it easier to raise the sail from the cockpit with the help of a Anderson 2 speed winch on the cabin top ....
Every time i use it I thank Carter for kicking my butt in to changing my old set up !! Lee/ Fla Tampa Bay
