Jib Halyard Fine-Tune
This high-power jib halyard fine-tune allows you to tension the luff as the wind cranks up. When you need headstay sag to power up the jib in chop and light air, the fine-tune allows quick control over headstay tension, making it easier to insert mast chocks.
Upgrading to a bridle can make your system self-tacking in 10-20 knots and downwind while reducing the adjustments needed in other wind ranges. Simply add a second low-friction Harken 2731 car and use Spectra® strops about 28 inches long. The length of the bridle straps is key so you can sheet in hard to center the boom without closing off the leach.
