The internal boom blocks & lines are continually twisting and fouling inside the boom, reefs are at times almost impossible to get out. I spoke with Riggers World and they recommended torque free line such as Amsteel Dyneema, has anyone found another solution to this problem. I believe this problem is endemic to P-31- 2's, probaly a poor initial design.

I too had one heck of time with the reefing system. I accidentially pulled one of the reefing lines back thru the boom and had to restring it. Then hand a difficult time reefing because of the twisted blocks inside the boom.

I ended up pulling the lines completely out and restrung them with a electricians fish tape. I am on my second season without any problems. But you need to be very patient. Reference the documentation in the Pearson 31 manual and you will see how they are 'strung'. It's worth the effort.

Good luck!
