    Just got new sails and took the opportunity to also add a stack pack/lazy bag setup. We came from a smaller boat with no furling headsail and a standard sail cover, so looking forward to hopefully more expedient sail handling time on the water.

    Anyone have advice for setting up the reefing lines? I see an extra line running through the selden boom that we should be able attach to the leech reef point. Then it looks like the luff reef point will hook onto the rams horn. How do the other reef points work with a stack pack setup?

    P.S. The picture only shows one batten installed, the other three broke during shipping. :(

    There are two reeling lines that run inside the boom. Upon exiting the boom at the mast the line goes down to a deck block, back up to the reeling point, and then back to a deck block and then to the cockpit.
    You can download the h310 owner's manual from the boat info menu item at the top of the page. Select owner resources -> Hunter -> 310 and then the download section. There is a drawing of how the reefing is run as well as a lot of other good stuff

    Thanks Tim! Not used to having a thorough manual. My last boat (a Seaward) was lacking in that regard.
