Proctor boom question

Postby Voda2000 » Thu Aug 14, 2014 10:48 pm

Hopefully these are not silly questions but I've been doing some reading and I can't figure a couple of things out about my rigging.

I have a proctor boom and currently I have been "pinning" the sail to the boom right at the mast. The one photo shows the pin. Then I'm taking the outhaul line through the clevis and tying it to the cleat on the port side of the boom that can be seen in the picture.

My questions are:

1) Should I have some kind of out haul system? Is that "nub" on the end of the boom part of one?

2) I don't have a cunningham right now but if I did do I just not pin the sail like I have been and connect the line there?

Sorry about the butchering of the terminology, I'm still figuring it out.

Boom connection to mast.
Aft if boom port.
Aft of boom starboard.
