6:1 4:1 purchase on outhaul
I'm a little confused. Flying scot sells a 6:1 outhaul kit, that as far as I can tell should be installed as pictured in the photos on the unofficial flying scot website. The problem is that the unofficial site states that the set up is actully 4:1 purchase, and I am wondering if that is a mistake. If it is not a mistake, then I don't know how to set up my boom for 6:1 purchase.
Also flying scot also sells two differents boom end caps. One says it has a tab for a turning block, I am assuming that it is necessary in order to get a shackle to fit.
I am also in the process of getting ready to order a new boom. I live on Long Island and shipping is almost $200 dollars to a residence and $120 to a business. If anyone has an idea on how to save a little here let me know.
Thanks in advance for any help.
