I had no idea that knot had a name and I believe the Larks Head would work very well on a cruising boat. In a race however I think you would want seperate sheets for sail changes. You could obviously use one long sheet on each sail but that involves a lot more line on the deck during the change and they both have to be refed.

Think I will stick with a bowline and my fore deck clearing it across during the tacks.
