I agree. I have a customer that has me make up spin sheets that sound just like that, only bigger.

Perhaps it was easier for someone to leave it clipped on the topping lift for storage?

Faster Don't get why it's attached to the mast, otherwise it sounds like a jib sheet set.

Not lazy jacks. They're still attached to the mast.

Maybe spinnaker sheets at one time but too short now maybe. I estimate that they're 25' each side, 50' total. The snap shackle in the middle doesn't make sense to me, though.

I have this rigging that I took off my boat this summer to get it out of the way and now that I look at it I'm not sure what it's supposed to be. No pictures but an easy description: it's 1/4 or 5/16 line, actually two lines, a red one and a green one each eye spliced to a single snap shackle. So it looks like a continuous line, half red and half green with a snap shackle in the middle.

When I took it off the mast, I assumed it was the spinnaker topping lift. It came off a small block only about half way up the side of the mast. Now it doesn't seem to make sense as a topping lift. I'm not sure what it's supposed to be.
