MC Monk 42 Boom Mast Config

Hello everyone: I just bought a 1986 MC42 (Monk) and am trying to configure the mast/boom assembly, including lines and pulleys. Since this is my first trawler, it's all very confusing. Can anyone offer advice on how this should be configured? Maybe with photos? I don't intend to lift a tender as the boat is equipped with a Seaweed power tender lift. But it would be nice to have it handy for lifting other heavy items aboard. Thanks.

Hi Ross, here are a few pictures. If you want to lift heavier items on board it would be best to raise the boom 30-45 degrees so its in compression. You can remove the port or starboard aft stay to get more swing overboard. Remove the cable on the side you are lifting from. That way it has no load.

Mast Boom Configuration

Hi Dave: Your config looks quite different from mine. I'll take a few photos and attach them. Your pulleys seem to be more numerous, and double, if I have the nomenclature correct. I just don't understand the technical element of this hardware. Ross

There are two block and tackle systems. One can raise and lower the boom. The other is attached to the end of the boom and attached to loads. The second picture has the block that connects to the load.
