Installing Wichard GybEasy gybe preventer

Hello,

I just received in the mail the Wichard GybEasy I ordered. I was wondering if anyone on the forum has installed one, and how they like the installation, what hardware they used, etc.

The default way is to used blocks at the shrouds, and bring both lines back to the cockpit. I'm not too keen on having two lines dangling about close to the prop.

The second way is to run one line back to the cockpit, that goes to a block under the boom that raises the GybEasy to the boom.

Thanks in advance

Mark
