Re: Who uses a Larkshead on their jib sheets?

I've used both soft shackles and (I confess not deliberately) Marks idea of staggered bowlines both with great success. We are very much a cruising boat and with all the rubbish we carry on deck I'm afraid getting lines tangled under kayaks, inflatables, fender boards and the like is more of a problem for us. I honestly cannot remember the last time we got a bowline caught up in the rigging.
