[QUOTE=Rewards;587394]My tackline exerts serious pressure on my bow pulpit, what do you think about the "tacker" that wraps around the furled fore sail?[/QUOTE]
I like the tackers. It helps to provide much better control and shape.
The only downside is on roller furler systems in which the genoa sheets and the bulk of the sail prevent the tacker from rising without a boost.
