rigging second reef line inside boom of C34 MK II
« on: April 13, 2013, 03:26:10 PM »

Can anyone tell me how to rig the second reef line inside the boom of a 2002 C34 MK II?  The specs show that the blocks are pre-installed in the boom, but how do you lead the line around the blocks?  I'm having a new main sail made and want to be sure it's installed correctly.

Did it last year. Take long electrical fish and start from forward end of boom. I used a thin 1/8" messenger first, then attached and pulled through the 5/16 or 3/8 for the 2nd Reefing line. Pay close attention to where the line will lead back to cockpit. I had to switch the spinnaker halyard and the turning block at the base of the mast to be control from the cockpit. Very DIY do-able. Good Luck.
