Lines aft - what''''s best?

Thomasstone, since you have found a good example of a single line reefing system that worked I am glad that you liked it. But in my case, having had to cut away a jambed single line reefing system and having to try to jury rig something that actually worked to replace a single line system that failed on a couple boats, I stand by my comments that single line systems are too slow, unreliable and friction prone for larger boats. I have never encountered one that was as quick, easy or reliable as a decent two line system.
