I have permanently rigged barber/inner/outer haulers on my self-tacking jib.
The way mine are rigged they have several uses.
That is very cool. Thanks so much for that.

A little side track from the OP..

Hanse have self tacking jibs's as standard on a models but they didn't invent this system. As I said it have been used on many other Scandinavian boats new and as a retrofit.

The problem with Hanse it that on many boats the standard sails is of bad quality and shape..

My self tacking jib is custom made in cruising laminate with on long standing batten. The batten make it possible to cut the sail with more width at the top.
