Jiffy reefing

Not related other than both deal with sails. Jiffy reefing is system of lines and blocks for shortening the main when the wind picks up. Hanks are used for connecting the head sail to the forestay. You may mean what is the differnce between a furling head sail and one that is hanked on.
