I am working on getting my running rigging setup now, and have made my way to the staysail. I can see that 2 options exist. 1 being the loose foot to a track and the other using the boom to a block on the deck. Being that the block has been installed, I plan to take this route and figure it out from there. I cant seem to find any real detail in the manual to guide me on the rest. I am guessing that the sheet is led from the set of blocks (btwn end of boom and deck)to a fairlead on the deck and then back to the cockpit where a jam cleat or rope clutch secures it. A little bit of muscle takes it from there? Some insight would be mucho appreciated.
