What would you recommend as reef points/system for the Northeastern Dory?

RE: Dory reef points

You'd need to add a halyard and some sort of track or hoops system so that the mainsail can be lowered.  Add a row of reef points parallel to the boom and you're there.  That would be a worthwhile tweak for that boat.

I need to build a reefing system for my dory also.  I found wooden mast hoops at  Those, and halyard should work.  Now I need to learn how to attach

the hoops and make reef points. 


RE: Dory reef points

$20 for each wooden mast hoop?  Ouch! I think I'll make my own.  I'm almost done making a wooden mast for my PMD and need wooden hoops for it.

Beads and Toggle for Mainsail

I saw this as an alternative to tying the mainsail to the mast, before comitting to the sail upgrade package. I am not using this on my NE Dory, but seemed like an improvement over the stock solution that would permit raising and lowering the sail.

Hi Guys, hoops won't work unless you have a gaff rig, use a track. CLC sells track, look under sail gear in the products section. SEEYA Jack
