Before we installed a removable bow-sprite we ran the tack line under the anchor roller. Two things to beware of at least in our case. In general, there can be huge forces on the tack line, so we run it to a winch rather than a cleat to avoid the danger of losing a finger when adjusting. Also, the tack line run under the anchor roller swept off our bi-light lens. I installed u-bolts above and below the bi-light as a guard.

As for parrel beads and an ATM tacker, we had limited success, but in the spirit of full disclosure, we've had limited success flying an asymmetrical spinnaker.
