Push your boom out to the shrouds, measure from the block to the boom and multiply by the amount of purchase. Add a couple feet for the tail. I use a continuous sheet (3:1/6:1), and love it but everyone has their own personal preferences.

Dear John,
I think the manual says 55 feet for the standard 5:1 system.

Regards
Bob
