Interesting idea. I might give that try.
Right after the gybe is completed I check that lazy sheet is over the pulpit.
I have only ever wrapped one spin sheet, we had a short sail back to calm water. One crew member donned a wet suit and googles and we unwrapped it, not cutting necessary.
Same here... in September off Samsun Narrows. My brother managed to free it without a wet suit... we ran low on Rum that day!
