Re: Why do we run a jib sheet through a genoa car?
Jib is a generic term. Genoa is specific to jibs which are larger than 100%. Jibs that are approximately 100% historically were called working jibs. When I started sailing, working jibs had fixed sheet leads, but Genoas were lead to an adjustable track. That track had Genoa cars. That would be my best guess.
Where is George Carlin when we need him to explain why we drive on the parkway and park in the driveway?
