Down Knothead... bad Knothead... sit...

For a 120% genny...definitely outside the shrouds... very unlikely to have a self-tacking 120% genny.

Knothead, technically yes, but it depends on where his genoa fairleads are. IF they are outboard of the shrouds, then routing the shrouds inboard of the shrouds isn't going to help at all.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I think the fairleads may be slightly inboard of the shrouds. Can't really remember though, and it doesn't seam like it matters.

TB, your pics aren't showing up on my end so l searched for some on my own and found this one:


To me it seems they have it ran between the shrouds. Not saying anyone here is wrong, just curious.

That's strange - they were there a minute ago. Try right clicking the red X, then Properties and pasting the url into your browser.

Huh, after manually pasting them, they now show up automatically. Weird

Thanks for the answers. I think I'll stop digging myself a hole now.

tomaz_423 will become famous soon enough
My experience is from different boats, but the principle is the same:
I usually sail Beneteau Oceanis 423: 140% genny, shrouds are about one foot or more inboard, track is just behind the shrouds. So outside always and on all points of sail.
Last week I have sailed on a Beneteau Cyclades 43.4: 110% genny, shrouds are attached to the outside of the hull, track is more inboard and backwards: Depending on point of sail and wind force I had to lead the sheets on outside, on inside and in between to get optimum trim.
If you ask me: very annoying as I had to change it several times. If the sail would be 5% smaller it would be clearly inside.
