Hi, What size sheets are you using?
I’ve got 10mm braid on the genoa and main and they’re comfortable to handle but I think they may be too heavy, and it means I have very large blocks on the boom and bridle. I’ve got an aft main at the mo, although I’m also thinking of switching to a centre-main.
I also notice Bob’s block isn’t at the end of the boom? Mine is on a shackle on the aluminium casting on the end of the boom
