Hello everybody, first post from me, though I suspect there will be many more to come.Smile

I have recently bought Inara and hopefully she will be on the water soon. She currently having all new standing rigging, new running rigging and lots of hull and sail tlc. 
I would be very grateful if any of the racers on here could explain or even better upload some pics of how they have set up the various blocks etc for guys/sheets/pole topping lift/downhaul etc. Also how they have run the downhaul back to the cockpit.
I’m about to fit deck organisers and new clutches so would be interested to know which ones others have found to work well.

Also interested to know whether you dip pole or end for end, and whether you tend to use sheets and guys or just sheets with barber haulers etc.

Another question somewhat unrelated, how do you attach halyards? With knots to captive pin shackles? Spliced shackles? Soft shackles?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Sweyn
