Re: Main Halyards - Back to cockpit or keep at mast?

I second Rob Gallagher's (4th post) idea, do both.
My boat had a Dutchman on the main, halyard run aft and roller furler, making and dousing sail was a pleasure. Many jiffy reefing set ups are at the mast so having both would be very convenient.
