Re: Dousing a cruising asym without blowing the tack?
The tack line led back to the cockpit can be 1-1 or have a small purchase as Jack mentioned, ie 2-1,......Altho I think I have him beat, 1-1 with a 15-1 winch on the back end! makes tightening REALLY simple!
A sock for 2 folks is probably the easiest way to douse and set the AS frankly. One can douse it with two, using a jib to blanket the AS. I have to admit, the sock is easier for the most part.
