Re: Main halyard to the cockpit on a B24
I know it's been a while since the first post in this thread, but I'm gonna add my 2 cents anyway.
As a singlehander, I always consider the risks involved in leaving the cockpit. Some days it's no big deal, but on others it's downright frightening. Any way I can rig my boat so it can be sailed from the cockpit, I consider a safety measure. Every time I go sailing I raise and lower sails. Much less frequently, I end up reefing. Running your main halyard aft will probably cut out 90% of your cabin top time. Running a reefing line aft on your boom is a simple addition and would cut out the rest. Personally, I'd do both.
