gooseneck... upside down?

Just did my first "backyard sail" with my Capri. Does the gooseneck get attached with the hole up or down? (see picture, mine is rigged with it on the downward side but the manual seems to show the hole on the top). Also, do I have the thumbscrew in the right place? I put it just above the gooseneck, thinking it should hold it in place. Thanks for any help!IMG_2289.JPG

Mine is rigged in the same orientation as yours. I remember you question coming up somewhere else here but don't remember what the response was.

I haven't used a thumbscrew stop to keep the gooseneck from rising up when the sail is down or cunningham off but you certainly could.

Here's a photo of mine. CapriGooseneck.jpg

Thanks for the post, looks like it might be alright in this orientation.
