Re: Halyards to cockpit?

got lousy knees. all past boats have every possible line lead aft. Even the jib halyards when possible even though they are on roller furling( that way can adjust tension). Agree with Jon and every couple of weeks re reeve the lines. Takes the twist out of them and makes me look at them for troubles. Main sheet is always the one with the most twist. Humbly disagree with Jon about electric winches. Find don't need the motor in the beginning and like to feel the tension in the line at the end so hand crank that part but it's a joy in the middle. Mostly "single" as one of us is either down below, up in the bow daydreaming or sleeping.

Jon- Please remember -it's us broken up, fat old men that keep you virile,young studs in business. Tending to the lines before the transport shouldn't be that big a deal when our oldtimer's disease kicks in and we forget- LOL
