Anyone Using Monitor Windvane ?

I'm new to the Monitor (had a Hydrovane for years but changed boats).
When connecting the steering lines to the wheel, the manual shows a recommended knot. I don't care for it much, and it's not easy to make neatly in Spectra. Also I find it difficult to get enough slack out of the system.

How's everybody else doing it?

Instead of a knot, try:

Hitchcraft - Home of the rope tie (ropetie)

or similar.
