Re: Jib sheet knots

GeorgeB makes some good points, but not to my application.Knot knowing much about jibs when I first raised one I simply used a long sheet doubled to the clew with a cow hitch. They are like permanent on the jib and stow on a belaying pin. Each jib is on its stay so no sail changes. I'm not racing and ease of management everything. Never slipped but replacement would be all or nothing. 22 tons, sailing daily.
