Re: Cam cleat placement for jib sheets?
Perhaps another alternative is to place the cam cleats aft of the horn cleats. You would do a single wrap of the tail and then through the cam cleat. This would keep your horn cleats available for dock lines and also avoid a cam cleat in the back for someone seated in the cockpit.
Running the tail around the horn cleat would also assure the sheet is better lined up with the cam cleat and less likely to pop out.
