Skipper one is located at the shroud. Crew one is just forward through one of the tramp grommets. I'm not convinced I have them in the optimal locations. Where do you run your run yours? Who uses what when going downwind?

Thanks in advance for the responses. Pictures= 1,000 words.

Alot of people move the skipper trap to the outboard side of the hull just aft of the shroud. The crews on my boat is through a grommet on the front of the tramp. (I think I don't get up there much) I have seen some off through the front cross bar and in other locations.

Light wind Daisy may trap but if the wind picks up I get out on the wire.
