for some more (often "old-school") options. The trick is keeping the clew end of the jib-boom from lifting up. A traveller system, or a Hoyt jib boom do this more or less automatically. A more traditional set-up often uses a bridle type of system. One thing to think about is the propensity for a jib-boom to whack one in the shins. A way around this is to use a traveller without a boom. Paul Kamen has a nice description of such a system
on his Merit 25.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
