Re: Jib sheet knots

I know they say the Clove Hitch knot will slip, but my jib sheets have never slipped. I read about this knot for this use years ago and went for it with perfect results. I sail a 40' (24000 LB) sloop with 5/8" double braid jib sheets on a big roller furled genoa in all reasonable conditions.
