No, I'm talking about the ones that look like this:



IMHO, they're ankle biters since if you walk too close to the stanchion base, they'll clip you right at the ankles pretty hard.

Are you talking about the ones that encircle the stancheon?

I also heard that the gerhauer design used to be like the scheafer design with one sheeve. Now it's like the harken with two. Can anyone confirm this?

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.
