ikent is on a distinguished road

That is about the size of the mainsail on my ketch and we use a cascading purchase that works well. It''s a 4:1 inside a 4:1 we have a 4:1 for coarse adjustment/light air and 16:1 to get that last little bit. So far we''re happy with this execution and we freed up winch!

Check out the Harken website they have rigging tips for various mainsheet configurations and sail areas.
