      I have a Newport 30 Mark II and I will be going to the boat tomorrow and take pictures of the boom and the traveler. Attached is a very high definition picture of the Boom and Traveler...you can blow it up and get some detains. I will be taking more photos for you tomorrow...there are some storms blowing by Dallas and if they are still here tomorrow I may have to delay one day but I will get them for you in the next day or so.

      Best regards

      Ours is a 30 MkIII. The double block on the traveler has a becket, so
      our rigging is closer to the first posting: 2 blocks on the boom, from
      becket to stern block, back to double on the traveler, up to a second
      block on the boom, back to double on traveler. Finally to a single that
      directs the sheet forward to the mast
      Guess that proves a picture is worth a thousand words :-)

      Don’t know about the third block forward. This is the way Gary Mull
      designed it, came and looked at everything, and we have always carried
      it with no problems. Note the eye splice at the end held by a D
      ring. Bob Schock
