    Jib Halyard question

    Jib Halyard Thanks for the reply guys! I just want to be sure I am seeing this right: So you use two lines at about 15ft each.

    Jib Halyard question

    Thanks Spoons, I guess it is a matter of preference then, and what your wind conditions are. I was thinking of trying the rigging as I read it in the diagram. If I don't like it I can always go back to the single line. Thanks again for your reply, Lance

    Jib Halyard question

    I recently purchased a Capri 14.2, sail number 995. The Jib halyard is one line. I noticed in the manual that it should be rigged differently, using two lines and a block on the port side of the mast. any suggestions on which one I should use? Thanks
