I just realized that I posted this twice - the first time it took 10 minutes before getting a timeout, so I assumed that something had gone wrong. Sorry about the duplicate threads (moderator - can the reponses be combined for a more continguous and complete coverage?).

I don't see myself using a cowhitch with 2 genoa lines, but I might use 2 anchor bends and just cut out the sections if I can't undo the knots when I wish to turn around the lines (I have 2 extra meters per side to play with) since I hate it when the knots get caught in the shrouds while tacking.
