Re: Asymmetric and pulpit

Along this same line, I have always rigged my asymmetrical with the tack attached to the forestay by a shackle (I have hank-ons) and a downhaul from there back to the cockpit. Am I complicating things by not just using a tackline to a block at the base of the forestay and leaving the tack off the forestay? I can see some advantage to a "tackline to a block" system when dousing the chute.
