Main Outhaul

With the current cut of main sails used in the Jet 14 class, the Outhaul is not as heavily used as some other control lines on the boat, so re-rigging an older outhaul may not be the 1st priority. If you are ready to convert to a DM-1 boom to reduce weight, here is how to get it done-

1) Do not use an end cap (or pull the old one off your DM-2, it adds weight where you don’t want it in light air.

2) The Outhaul shown is a 4:1 Outhaul that can be adjusted by the crew from forward in the cockpit at any point of sail (No reaching out of the boat to reach that tail...)
