Alternatives for larger boats
Follow up on the same subject, so I'm dredging up this older thread. Since I already have two lines and I want to eliminate knots it looks like I need to splice an eye in the end. So far so good.
I also looked at the Attaching Jibsheets
Then the options are:
1) larks head (hard to undo)
2) Tylaska Spool Shackles
3) Tylaska J-Shackles
4) EquipLite Connectors (too expensive!)
Any thoughts on these. It seems like the Spool shackles might be a good compromise. Has anyone used these for genoa sheets on a larger (40'+) boat?
