Re: Cool, soft way of attaching jib sheets


Can we all agree that:
1. If you race, or have many different headsails, that two separate sheets are best, and may be tied on with bowlines, or whatever method you like.

2. that if you cruise, and use 1 headsail like 99% of the time, that a single sheet, attached with a cows hitch is pretty easy to so and very effective

3. That there are many different ways of attaching sheets to sails, and the you are able to choose the method that satisfies you and and that said method will not satisfy anyone else.

Must admit that I prefers a soft shackle to the knot in the OP.
