Why bother adjusting your sheets if all they're going to do is stretch anyway?

Only thing that should stetch is dock lines, and anchor rode. Nothing else. Smaller high tech lines will kink/hockle less and won't absorb as much water as the fuzzy daysailing lines. They are hard on the hands, some require to be scuffed up a bit to grip a winch, but to me, they were worth it.
