... and a longish knot tends to slide around shrouds and stays with less hangups than a short chunky one.....
The term "peel" typically refers to hoisting one spinnaker before dousing the first one.. but the concept is, of course, the same. As to foil-set genoas we've always simply referred to sail changes e.g. "gotta change down to the #3", with hanked-on sail changes referred to as "bare headed" - since you cannot avoid a period of time without a headsail up or drawing.....
I will have to remember the term "peal" thos! thank you!
