On the Water
This may seem like an odd question, but here goes. I have a Viking, but I'm using the spars from my Phantom. On the upper boom on the Phantom, there is an eyestrap to attach the halyard. I want to lower the boom closer to the deck and the Sunfish rigging guide says to use a clove hitch. I know how to tie a clove hitch and I tried it today and it doesn't work (at least with the halyard that I have). What's the best way to secure the halyard to the upper boom?
