Firstly, thanks to all who provided information last/this year - very much appreciated.

I have yet another question. Where the boom meets the mast I have a rope tied at the left side (as facing the rear of the L3K) and a wheel at the base of the mast doing nothing. Is this correct?

The pulley at the base of the mast is likely the one for the spinnaker halyard (which then runs forward to a floating siamese block shared with the pole outhaul, before returning aft to the cleat).

I can only hazard a guess that the rope at the gooseneck is for the cunningham (downhaul) that you almost never need to use on a 3k!

Hi Tony

Thank for responding to this and apologies for the tardy delay. I had the information a tad mixed up so I have taken photos to better explain.
The pulley is at the base of the boom and not the mast as first incorrectly described.

The line is part of the internal rigging of the clew outhaul. So far as I know the blue sheave is redundant on the 3k; if I recall rightly, it is used on boats that lead the outhaul control down a cleat or cleats on the hull/deck.
