Thanks guys. Yea, I can see using the twings only in light winds and going DD, but on more of a broad reach and in heavy winds I feel like it necessary and faster to have the pole stable to ensure it remainds square to the wind. We get some strong shifty blows and big swells here in Chicago and pole adjustment seems to need to happen often. I like idea of running the downhaul closer to the mast that does make more sense...and looking back at the Harken bible as Tommays has kindly posted that appears to be the recommended approach. I will give that a whirl.
Best,
B
