SETTING UP THE ADJUSTABLE OUTHAUL FOR MAUISAILS™ CARBON BOOM

The adjustable outhaul kit comes with one piece lightweight adjusting line, two pieces of heavier tensioning line, two adjuster pulleys, custom plastic ClamCleat™ bands, two rubber filler pieces, four small wood screws, and two coated aluminum ClamCleats™. You will use the rubber spacers if you want your cleat band to be on the bare carbon. There is no need for this when the band is on the grip area.

First assemble the ClamCleat™ into the band, facing the jamming action of the cleat towards the boom front. Be sure and have the boom graphics the right way, so the tail pulleys will be in the right relationship to the cleat. You may angle the cleat anyway you find comfortable during sailing.

Using the small screws supplied, secure the cleat band where you want it.

When the band is on, put the shorter heavier ropes through the hole in the middle of the cleat and secure the ends with a figure of eight knot. Make the knot be on the inside of the boom.

Next run the heavier rope through the small pulleys, then return to the ClamCleat™, insert the rope and tie a figure of eight knot.

Now attach the end of the light, longer rope to the bale of one of the small pulleys. Take the loose end of the light rope and feed it through the pulley that is on the same side as you began.

Then make a loop around the clew ears, back to the outside of the lower pulley, around and back to the clew ears. Next go around the other top pulley and finish by tying the light rope to the small pulley.

You should now be ready to have an adjustable experience. Using a small amount of candle wax or beeswax on the lighter line will make it flow through the pulleys with less friction and make your rope last longer as well. Don’t wax the pulling lines because you have to hold onto them!
