Step 3: Re-attach kicker assembly into boom. Pass secondary yellow line long tail through block attached to short tail on secondary yellow line. This long tail now continues down to the mast base block and back to the control line cleat base. To detach after sailing, remove the yellow secondary line from the cleat base and mast base block.
