Dear Marksandstad

The number of reefing sheaves on the boom determine the number of reefs.
How many reefing sheaves are there at each end of the boom?
Kind regards

Apologies for not getting back sooner.

There are 3 sheves in the boom, the center is for the main outhaul.

Can you please explain how to reinstall the slab reefing lines in the other 2.

Many thanks.

Mark,

Dear Mark
The reefing lines are tied around the boom vertically below the reefing cringle, then led up through the cringle and down through the boom end sheaves and led forward inside the boom. At its forward end sheaves are needed for leading the lines down to the deck.
Two lines can be used with three reefs if the first reef line is re-routed through the third reef cringle while the second reef is in use
Kind regards
Lars
