I've got two separate 9/16" doublebraided sheets with bowlines now - but when I do replace the worn lines later this season, it will be with one continuous line secured to the clew with a larkshead knot.
The single reason for this decision is to avoid the inevitable snags I get with my inner forestay, whenever tacking.
BTW, this topic was discussed in several threads recently and a while back.
