Hi, I was planning on doing something about my present genoa reefing arrangement, so this thread is invaluable, thanks. I wonder if you could answer a heap more questions, that probably demonstrate that I’ve missed the point somewhere along the way:

I presume you dispense with a separate forestay?

Can you then shoot bridges? I presumed that if you used a safety chain to the top of the spar then you can’t drop the mast on the move? (At present my foresay is led back for this purpose)

Do you leave the sail on the spar (assuming that you don’t drop the mast in a dingy park) or fit a halyard?

many thanks
