Re: Cool, soft way of attaching jib sheets
I've found that once a Cow Hitch is more than about 20 minutes old (figuratively speaking) it takes a marlinspike to get it loose.
If one doesn't want shackles, use bowlines so they can be easily undone later.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
