Re: Who uses a Larkshead on their jib sheets?

Have used a larks head on a sail that never had the sheets removed.. but it's problematic if you need to change the sheets around for other sails.

Alex's system works well; we've gotten by with (longish) bowlines, they seem to hang up less if they are longer. I prefer not to store sails with sheets attached.
