I have been sailing now 12 times on this boat and find that setting the jib downhaul on the beach and leaving it for the day or having to stop to adjust doesn't make sense. Has anyone treid to rig an active jib cunningham system on their boat? I did not even think about it until in my time wasting mode I was looking at the Tiger rigging instructions and saw that this utilized a jib cunningham that appears would work for the 21SE. I have attached the link below and it is shown on PDF page 26.
Is this stupid? Is it not needed? If not why not? Other ideas?
Even with good standing rigging tension and an overall tight rig, I think that setting the jib downhaul tension without main up and tensioned makes for different dynamics. I may also be able to use this to reduce my jib flutter. I think that I need a new jib, but in the meantime should be able to have better control of the jib shape.
