The thread is very useful to educate us on the seamanship of our fellow CF members and different possible solutions for tricky situations. It is clear that most of us have learned to cope by ourselves in most situations, Sailing schools can only teach so much. I would again suggest novice
cruisers to try go cruise
with cruising liveaboards who actually go and live on the hook.
