Some people don't have a dedicated set of sheets for every sail... So untying a lark's head knot, when doing a sail change, with 50-100' of wet jib sheet to pull through is going to be less than fun.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
