Jib control alternates....
Has anyone else tried the first jib rigging as detailed here:
If so how do you like it?
My boat came rigged with the jib cleating on the seats. Which is fine when I'm sailing alone or with one other person but with 3 or 4 people in the boat the cleats on the seats are in the way and kind of annoying to deal with. I'd like to keep the sides clear for sitting (has internal spinaker trims) if possible.
The setup above looks like it would be nice as it would keep the seats clear of hardware and mostly clear of the lines except at the very front. The downsides I see is it is probably not class legal and I might have to redo my Cunningham. I have a cleat on each side of the boat basically between the pair of cleats as shown on that page above but on the vertical part of the deck (forward coaming?). Cleat a line on one side, run it up to the sail and back down to the cleat on the other side is the Cunningham. The jib sheets with the above setup might get in the way of that.
