It never lets the boom get away from you, and yes, when you alter the mainsail sheet, you have to adjust it again, and when you throw a tack or a gybe you have to walk it over to the other side. I could run two of them I suppose, but they might get a bit clumsy.

I would not be without it for a moment, it did not cost much, and it got me home to Scotland from Houston.
