Hi all, purchased a new to us C36 MKII 2005 and looking to make some upgrades to help us this coming sailing season and need the advice of the group.
Launching the main sail was very difficult this summer from the cockpit. The Boom Car seems to operate freely but looking at the boom interior it appears (and tech data supports this) that the line runs from the car at the clew through a sheave at the aft end of the boom straight thru to the fwd end where it rounds one sheave and exits the boom to the block on the deck and then aft to the cockpit. I believe, right or wrongly, that this setup would be better if there were a 2:1 at least (or more if possible) blocks in the boom. The tech data does not have any options to do this so I am hoping someone has taken the task on with their MKII boom and could share their wisdom.
I have a tech drawing that I hope shows.
Thank you all in advance.
