I like to solo sail and have a question about getting the jib down in a stiff wind/bad weather/docking. Has anyone rigged a jib downhaul running a small diameter line from the cockpit to a swivel block at the bow and then attach it to the top hank or the head of the jib? Hoist the jib halyard as you normally would and tie it off, then cleat off the small diameter line in the cockpit. To bring it down release the jib halyard pull from the line in the cockpit? I know the self furling jib would be the best answer, just wondered if anyone had done this. Don't want to spend $400+ getting the jib done and buying the self furling system.
