The seaways have got to go. I have a pair of carbo rachamatics ( Harken ) that do not have a becket. Bought them for spin but didn't end up using them. Question - would it make since to use single line purchase for the jib, standard is 2-1 I think?
Question - could I tie off on the slide and run as standard?
The correct Harken blocks are $90 each and the ones I have were 70-80 last year, would like to use what I have. The jib doesn't have that much pressure and is usually cleated in so maybe a single line could work, go from jib clew thru block, across deck, thru block and back to clew. What do you guys think? I am considering a complete change to self tacking jib for next season if I can't find a happy medium before.
