Reefing lines back to the cockpit for RL28?
Ours is set up on the boom - which means one of use needs to go forward if we need to reef. This is something I find unsettling in high winds and seas. Has anyone set themselves up so they can reef from the cockpit without venturing out of the cockpit?

Reefing
You can download some diagrams from Ronstan. Click on "systems" the bottom of this web page http://www.ronstan.com.au/marine/index2.html Also here http://www.harken.com/rigtips/reefing.php They each have a simple Jiffy system that would suit.

reefing system for Rl28
We now use a method similar to system 2 on the Harken WWW site and it is very successful
