Thank you very much everybody. Probably I will go with a single line reefing for the reef 1 and 2 and like jon for the reef 3. I will instal the little block for less friction If you have photos for the installation of the little block. thank you

Thank you for all your answers, my navigation plan is gulf of st-lawrence and nova scotia and newfoundland and sometimes between 20 and 30 hours time of navigation. Sometimes the forecast for this region changes rapidly and that's why I want a third reef on my new mainsail. Jon if you have picture of your installation and what is a dogbone?  Jon you have reason for the third reef it's only for the rare times when the weather comes very bad but when you are in the middle of the sea I think it's a good idea to have the third one, If you have more pictures I would appreciate. Excuse my fault i'm learning my English. thank you.

Another think, on my new mainsail I want a third reef and I need idea to how install the third one. My idea is to install a hook for my first reef and keep the two reef line in place for the reef two and three. What do you think?

Thank you Mike. If you have some picture I would appreciate. I have the same system of you and never able to take a reef by the cockpit. And when there are big wave itís not funny to go to the mast. There is too many friction in the system

Hello I need a new main sail and the same time I want an amelioration on the reefing system because it's never easy to take a reef with my originally system. My boat is a mk11 1997. All the time I need to go to the mast because there is always something block. My English is not very good so if you have photos with your idea it would be appreciate. Thank you.

if there is a specialist in finition I will appreciate the information. For now my table is sand with 120 grit and I wait because I don't know what I will use for finition. the iroko wood is similar of teak and contains natural oil. Any suggestions. Thank you.

Nice job. I made mine this winter but with iroko wood. My problem is that I donít know what to use for finition. I see that you will use epoxy. Is it easy to use. My old one had cetol marine but I need to apply every year. Excuse my fault Iím learning English.
