The clew outhaul is fixed – use a thin lanyard from the cringle around the stubby horns on the end of the boom and back to the clew, depending on the lanyard repeat 2 or 3 times.
To attach the mainsheet use a single block with becket, an example here.
Attach the block to the “slotted plate” with the shackle. For the transom use a double block to give a 3:1 purchase. The mainsheet starts at the boom end, secure it to the becket with a bowline.
Hope that helps30/09/2017 at 12:06 pm #24637
Ah wow that does really help! I would never have worked out how to do the outhaul. Thank you – I may have some further Mark 1 questions as I go!
