captainbob Posted June 2, 2014 Share #1 Posted June 2, 2014 (edited) I’m getting ready to rig a fishing schooner and have a question about the gaff topsail. When coming about was the topsail tack lifted over the gaff halyard lines or was it left to windward? In pictures the tack is usually to the lee of the gaff halyard lines but in some pictures the fore topsail tack will be on one side and the main topsail tack will be on the other. When rigging should there be a second tack line going up over the gaff halyard lines so the tack can be moved from one side to the other?
