Nurse Ratchet

thanks for the replies..
now here is a value/need question. what are the inherrent advantages of using a ratchet over a standard block in an asymm spinnaker environment? for instance, the very affordable lewmar 60mm w/ becket on does not have a ratchet. the harken 3.00 w/o becket is $50.00 ea. as this won't be used in a racing environment, i'll mostly be sailing to trim.
thoughts anyone?

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.
