Wrote that when I was tired.. should be two separate things... Easier to reef. Easier to tension as there is less friction in the system than a bolt-rope main.
The easier to reef has nothing to do with the bolt rope... for instance, I have sail ties for the reefing points wrapped around the boom...just waiting for the sail to drop...They're bright orange, so they're easy to see—so I don't try to un-reef with them still attached.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
