I used a system very similiar to that described by Matt when reefing my 1979 H16. I used two 1/4" ~ 2' lines, one each, for the tack and clew (double wrapped) with square knots (or sheep bends) and ball bungies for the grommets between. I kept the lines in my Hobie bag that I keep clipped to the tramp just aft of the mast for onboard access. The double wrap made it easy to get a tight bundle even when on the water in a blow and the ball bungies are also quick and easy to install. This set-up is quick & simple AND worked well in 30 -35+ winds.
