Re: Halyards to cockpit?

Jon- love dinghy sailing and even a catboat with just one string to pull but at a certain size and when you're aiming only at the horizon
tiller sweep takes up to much of the cockpit when you tack
windvane doesn't work if your boat is fast enough going downwind
you're are truly off the grid and it hasn't rained.
you're by yourself and see the line squall and the main needs to come down NOW as the metereoman keeps dropping.
Was told Ed Joy's old boss said he wanted a tiller steered ( on gugdeons and pinions) 30' full keeled boat for his retirement. I'm not that old yet ( grin ).
