These are my final pics with a last few questions: 1. The mainsail - you can see there's a few more inches at the top, which I can raise. The rope attached to the wire loop of the halyard is through the jib winch right now just to hold up the sail. Even if I was able to attach a rope to the loop, small enough to go around the block, I still wouldn't be able to bring the wire loop up enough to go over the cleat. Would a thin spliced plastic rope, sown together on the wire loop, be strong enough if I got it around and over the cleat? 2. The sail seems to bunch up and is not smooth. 3. The leftover cord of the outhaul is just hanging there. What can I do with it? 4. As mentioned in the outhaul post, the cords going double through the cleat are not smooth. Should there be a small block there? Any other suggestions would be most welcome. I'd like to get it into the water this weekend to see how everything works.
