Depending on the size and load on the sail, tightening the leach line while underway can be a real pain. If you often have a loose leach, I would try to tighten it up in calm conditions or at the dock first. When you get it right, I don't find you need to adjust it much.
Further, when the jib is deployed, the leach line is going to be on the leeward side of the boat and possbily hanging over the water. Not a fun time to reach for it.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
