Re: Main Halyard Tension
In sailing as a cruiser I would think that main halyard tension is the absolute last think to worry about. I keep the vertical wrinkles out of it - showing its too tight, and the spiders web Showing its too slack... And thats all.
Also, cruising, if halyard tension needs altering you probably need to tuck in a reef or shake one out, so that will be done as u reef.
A cunningham eye, line and winch for a cruising boat is a WOFTAM. waster of time and money.
As for in mast furling... I dunno.
