Just curious, how does this 6:1/24:1 dump the main more quickly than a 6:1???

IIRC, Denise's current setup is a 4:1... which I believe she mentioned in a previous thread.

You need something more like this:



Which I'm sure would be just a couple of blocks on the end of what you have now..

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.
