    Gentleman and ladies,

    New owner of a gorgeous 1979 S2 7.3. Sorting everything this year and over the winter and will be commissioning spring 2015. Boat is missing a couple of things (vang, genoa blocks) and outhaul rig.

    My boom has no hole in the side or sheave at the end. All that is there is a small swivel block. I am ready to invent something appropriate (short of holes and sheaves).

    Can someone with the original boom config take a picture and show me how the 7.3 outhaul is rigged?

    Thank you all in advance.
    Tony (Sebago Lake, Maine)

    Lost outhaul line in boom on my 9.2. Can see sheave attached to wire rope outhaul. How does one attach a new line to this assembly without taking boom ends off which are immovable. Where is outhaul line attached? Inside the boom? Configuration photo?

    My '79 7.3 has reefing and outhaul lines inside the boom. They used to exit at the gooseneck, under two cam cleats until I led them to a turning block at the mast base, thence to new line stoppers forward of the port cabin-top winch. Easy to adjust and winch if necessary.

    Awesome that you are trying to help these fine folks but something tells me that your audience evaporated over 3 years ago.....

    TopCat, I know you are going by the thread dates, and yes, no one may benefit, but we S2 owners keep an eye on such stuff.
