I have just measured mine and it is 9.5m long, which is only just long enough – 10m would be better. It is a 7mm Rooster polylite laser sheet, routed from a central swivel cleat on the aft slope of the centreboard case, up to a block directly above on the boom, along to another block towards the end of the boom, down and through another block on an adjustable strop and back up to terminate on the end of the boom. You can rig it without the block on the strop, but that would give you less purchase.
