I aplogise for the poor quality image below, but was wondering what the latch like things were for on the boom at the gooseneck of my new Wayfarer sail no. 10089 I have no idea where they latch onto or what they’re for.

Hi , I guess you are referring to the reefing hooks. The should be reefing lines on the aft end of the boom to go with these.
hope that helps28/03/2022 at 9:37 am #36095
Thanks Bob, makes sense, maybe they’ve been made redundant as all my reefing lines run inside the boom, I’m guessing modified, where the lines would have previously gone through the hooks.28/03/2022 at 4:29 pm #36097john1162Participant
Your reefing lines would pull down the back of your sail onto the boom and the front of your sail would be hooked onto the hook.
pull reefing line to scandalise the sail
lower sail and hook onto reefing hook
hoist sail a little to tighten the luff of the sail and take a final pull on the reefing line.29/03/2022 at 9:07 am #36100
Many thanks John, I understand what to do with them now, much appreciated
