Rigging a Proper Preventer–Part 2

Chapter 23 of 27 in the Online Book Sail Handling Made Easy

In Part 1 I wrote about why rigging a proper end boom preventer is vital when sailing off the wind. In this post I’m going to share how we have made rigging a preventer easy on Morgan’s Cloud.

This is information that will help you set up your boat so that you can, like us, always have a proper preventer rigged when the boom is far enough out to make it possible.

But first, let’s start off with a short video to demonstrate how easy it is to use this system in practice.

Now, let’s dig into the details and look at the two parts of our system, which I have named the boom line and the deck line.
