Re: Flying a Symmetrical Like an Asymmetrical

Okay, another question!

Someone suggested that I might consider rigging another halyard for the chute, but my masthead is super-simple. Only has four sheaves: two for the main and two for the jib. Looks exactly like this:

So, there's that stainless D on the forward part of the masthead. Do you think I could attach another block there and hoist the chute from there, or am I just begging to tear half of my masthead away doing that? I've no idea what that loop is there for.
