Reef Lines


Our boat has an old fashioned roller furling boom. The entire boom rolls in place and the sail wraps around it. This old way of reefing allows for infinite reef points however it isn't the swiftest process. While we will never get rid of the old system (because it is part of our booms' design), we thought it might not be a bad idea to have both the traditional and modern systems in place. 

We are stil working full time and getting boat projects done after hours. I am currently roasting a chicken in the oven while Matt is installing cheek blocks and cleats so we can reef the modern way. I have been giving Matt shit for the past 5 years for hoarding boat goods but fortunately this install isn't gonna cost us anything. 

Still have a lot of stuff to go through but we are getting closer every day.
