Re: Main halyard stbd, jib halyard port??"?

Maybe it's a training wheel boater thing flaunting convention. Confusing for us sailors who grew up with the Stbd Main Halyard location expected. Even a bit dangerous as the wierd halyard location hit home when the skipper needed me to reef the main and I tried to drop the jib instead in a sudden big increase in wind velocity.
Same exact experience here roverhi...

Well said!

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...

Mai Tai's fix everything...
