Sailingdog - ahh, that makes more sense. Since I've alread got 2 lines of appropriate length I'll have to use those. I checked up on the internet and it seems the cow hitch (or Lark's head or several other names) isn't quite what I was looking for.
HelloSailor - electrical tape to get the standing end out of the way. lol - not to carry any load. I have in-mast furling but you are correct, the genoa and mail halyards are spliced and shackled - I was looking at the topping lift which has a bowline.
