Paul, that was an interesting post with regard to the pole jaw direction. I have always suspected that there are regional differences in how things are done. Here on the east coast of the US I have never sailed on a boat that sailed with the jaw opening down. Most of the boats that I have sailed on are set so their bridles only work with the jaws up. This is done to make it easier to keep the guy in the jaws and make it easier to get the pole on the mast. Where do you sail?

Jeff
