I use a bowline for port/starboard Genoa sheets, but find that the resulting bulk gets caught up on my inner forestay. I don't want to remove this stay - since it's useful for the staysail, but need to consider other knots.

Here's the bowline - which everyone should know . . .



My Genoa sheets need replacement and am considering one continuous line with a Lark's Head knot at the center. My concern is whether it will hold fast - anyone have experience using this knot for a headsail application?
