Reefing Blocks For 42

Dave Kall

Bud, I bought a manual for the 42 from you when we started this project but don't find any page showing the placement of the reefing blocks for slab reefing. I remember the 32 manual had one. I've looked at the blue prints I have to and can't find one. The spar is a super spar the sails are from Kern. Could you please provide me with any dimensions you might have concerning such, say measured from the end of the boom. The only one I could find was for a ketch and I don't know if there would be the same.

You will need to use the reefing rings on the mainsail that you have to locate the positions of the reefing blocks. I do not believe that there was ever a drawing of the block locations.
