I have figer out the stand off cabels and the spreader and jib line to hold the mast in place! Now the hard stuff got (red line for the jib) and ( Blue line for main sheet and block and tackel for boom ) I have run into thiis stragen set of blocks one on each side of mast,thay are bolted to the top! Thay are 6″ down from mast cap,( not in line with slot for main sheet ? Do I use 2 lines to lift the the sail,or how does it work? Thank You for your help
