We have a Cobra 850 28ft yacht. At the moment, the main haliard, reefing lines, outhaul, topping lift and so on are rigged to winches on the mast. I've recently acquired a couple of winches and blocks (kindly donated by another forumite) and I'd like to lead the lines back to the cockpit, with the winches housed on the saloon roof either side of the companionway.
The lines I have on the mast are main and spinnaker haliards, topping lift, kicker, outhaul and two sets of main reefing lines. I could attach the main to hooks on the boom, or lead another line back for each reef point, meaning I could reef from the cockpit.
Any advice on which lines would be best to lead back and which are less useful? I'm trying to come up with a design, but would appreciate some thoughts before I bugger it up.
