    I'm looking for information on how to implement uphaul and downhaul from the cockpit. My plans focus on a tee bar that you use to operate the board. He does show turning blocks at the case exit but nothing associated to attaching to the board itself. Is it just a hard spot with something to terminate the lines to? An additional block would be needed at the bottom for the downhaul I believe.Also which case works better foil shaped or rectangular? The plans use a rectangular case and you fair the exit with filler to close up the slot.
