RE: iS145 vs. FT148
We are using an adjustable outhaul kit from NeilPryde.
The boom is a HPL Race carbon boom (up to 305 cm).
I don't know how many pulleys the boom end has got (our gear is in Holland right now).
We have a kind of clew "rolls" from Chinook through the clew in order to make it easier.
Maybe we should control the lines and find out if there is no "twist" or something which "blocks" the pulling of the lines.
I use such an adjustable outhaul system on the 9.0 too but I have more or less the same problem. I can pull it to some extent but than everything seems blocked which makes I cannot use it to 100 % (in my personal feeling).
I have some nice pictures of the 11.0m on the Gun mast. If you tell me how I can send it to you I will do so (personal email or something).
Thanks for all your efforts!
