Re: Who uses a Larkshead on their jib sheets?

We find we minimize hanging up the bowlines on the rigging by insuring plenty of slack on the released sheet and not aggressively pulling the new working sheet until the clew gets to the mast. Wind will do the work for you, if you don't create opposing tension on the two sheets, which drags the clew across the standing rigging.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
