My boat's triatic runs from the main masthead to the mizzen masthead, where it is then lead through a turning block and down to a cleat at the mizzen's base.
Although I haven't used it to do so yet, I've been told by other Nauticat ketch owners, that aside from tension adjustment purposes, this is used to lower the main mast to deck, while navigating through waterways with low clearances - such as under bridges. Of course the masts are both deck-stepped.
