If someone has any photos I'd appreciate it if you'd post them as well.

Lots of ways to rig these. I used a becket block, and ran the jib sheets through the block and becket (2 blocks would be better, but would add weight; some people just use a stainless ring and run both sheets through the same ring). I ran the barberhauler line out to a bloack at the end of the beam, and then under the tramp and out a grommet to a cam cleat. I used slides for the tramp track to mount the cam cleat on. Helps keep the tramp a little cleaner, and keeps crew on the high side for those windy bear-aways. I sewed a plastic ring under the tramp where the barber haulers cross just to keep the lines up against the tramp.

some folks run a seperate jib sheet through the beam-end block, and play that downwind (almost like a spinnaker sheet), instead of using a barber hauler.
Sorry, pics are in a Yahoo group. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/beachcats ... 6/pic/list
