Start by marking your current sheet mid way up between the two blocks.(between the cleat and the top block) This needs to be marked at the Block to Block max steating position. You will want to bury atleast 18 inches into the bigger line. Also give yourself a couple extra feet till your sure on length. Undo your blocks and you have a sheet to measure to get your new lenghts.
