Description

If you prefer to use a 'forward' purchase system for your Laser / ILCA outhaul, this outhaul primary is for you. Expertly assembled by our Rigging Department, this line includes a 2mm Harken Micro Single Block with Becket and an appropriate length of 3mm Amsteel line spliced to the block. In this 'forward' style of outhaul purchase system, attach your outhaul control line (not included) to the block with becket, run forward to one of two blocks at the mast, back through the block with becket, up to the second of two blocks on the mast, and then down to the deck. Run the 3mm Amsteel line that is spliced to the block back to the end of the boom and connect to the clew in your preferred style. 

Complete your system with our Outhaul Mast Loop w/ Block (Double Block), which attaches to the mast at the gooseneck, and your preferred control line.

'Forward' vs 'Aft' Outhaul Purchase Systems - There are two common styles of Laser / ILCA outhaul rigging. The first is to position the purchase system 'forward' using two blocks hung around the mast at the gooseneck and a block with becket connecting your control line (goes down to deck) to your primary line (goes aft to end of boom). This was the method used in all of the original Harken Outhaul/Cunningham upgrade kits, which included Harken 22mm Micro Blocks. The second method for outhaul rigging is to use an 'aft' purchase system, which utilizes the cleat on the boom as an anchor point for a turning block. In this setup, one block is hung around the mast at the gooseneck and the cascading purchase system is position aft of the cleat. Both methods work great, though most sailors currently prefer the 'aft' style of outhaul rigging.
