Re: Sail stack system
Stack packs, lazy jacks, etc are necessary evils, if you have a large main and are shorthanded. If you have a battened main, they can make it a real pain to raise it, but you do get used to it and learn some tricks.
I'm not sure you would call it the halyard, but the line that comes down the mast that you use to adjust tension and hold them up is the one if find most likely on the boat to slap the mast at anchor.
