is this a double sheet, which goes to both starboard and port, and is tied at the clew using something like a larks head knot, or a single sheet, where you have two separate sheets for starboard and port??

35' and 70' respectively...or there abouts... it depends on the exact layout of your genoa track and what turning blocks you have to go through and where the winches are. They could be as short as 30'/60' or as long a 40'/80'.

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.
