Hi,

On Draghonfly (301 2002) the outhaul is connected to what looks like in internal 2:1 car inside the boom. The outhaul has now worn to the point I need to replace it, but I can't work out how it is rigged. I think I have to take the end caps off the boom and while I'm at it I'm thinking of removing the car as there is a ton of friction in the outhaul, and just lead the outhaul back to the cockpit.

Has anyone dismantled the boom and knows whats inside? I can't find anything on the Sparcraft website either.

Thanks

Pete

I will check mine out today and feedback.

I am not sure we have any car for outhaul.

Friction not a problem other than with the line running over the deck from the front organisers to the clutch. 

Hope to explain with a photo.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. I took the ends off the boom and fished the outhaul out. It's not a car, just a standard double block and lots of rope. The block looks OK so I think the friction is in the sheaves in the boom ends. It is a Sparcraft part so I'm guessing it came as standard.

Since its a standard part , and it does make mainsail shape easier to control I'm going to keep this.

Hi Steve, I had the same problem with friction in the halyards and reefing lines when I first got Dragonfly back in 2007. To resolve this I added some teak blocks under the turning blocks to raise them up as described in this post: https://www.myhanse.com/friction-in-running-rigging_topic1411_page2.html?KW=friction
