Basically the sheet is double-ended, but both ends come thru a pair of sistered camcleats. So you can fine tune with power by trinmming just one sheet, or trim or ease fast by handling both. Trimming both is no more difficult than a single sheet.
The system IMHO provides the best single solution for both power and speed.
Great idea, SF - much neater and far more clever than anything I've seen before.
I particularly like this one, which will make life easier on my boat:
Thanks for the tip.
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
