Hey John just looked at this thread and noticed that your and Jet's lines run outboard on the stanchions. Any particular reason for that??
I like to keep that line inboard as not to interfere with my jib sheet.
Also when my genoa is unfurled I don't really have to cleat it off as the wind and jib sheets don't put tension on it. I only cleat this line off when I "reef" the jib and or when fully rolled up.


A couple of more weeks until sailing.
