I guess they don't slap in the wind, and there's less to get tangled?

How do you run yours outside? On myy original outside setup the halyards went up one side, over the sheaves, and down the other. That only leaves room for two. I guess my spinnaker halyard goes through a block that just kinda dangles there. That's an option.
