Thanks you Peas. Babystay tackle seems to make the most sense as to why I would need the mechanical advantage, and is a control I've never had to deal with. I saw the wire rope leading up the mast (through the wrapping) and just assumed it was jib halyard but that must be incorrect.

I'll sleep better tonight. Thanks again for all the suggestions.
