Like a normal lead, you'l want to adjust it fore and aft.  Different reach angles will call for different leads for the barber haul.  Eg, almost beating, it'll be further aft than almost being able to set a chute.


Keep looking at the leach of the sail as well as the top third.

And thanks for the link.  I had most of the Bolitho books but lost them in a fire.
