Chris-

could you post photos and say what kind of boat it is.... IMHO something is a bit out of whack if the headsail sheets are getting trapped by the lifelines at the winches.

I have to push the sheet down and pull it sharply back up when releasing.

Thanks for the heads up!

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.
