If I were your neighbor in the anchorage, I would probably be tempted to come and cut down your mast in the middle of the night!

It's never a good idea to have a mechanical device locked away where it is inaccessible for repairs when they're needed (and believe me, they will be).

Yes, this thought occurred to me as well but like you say, tris and not cats.

Sometimes it's necessary to state the obvious for the benefit of the oblivious.

Re: Why don't they......

...and not all cats have their main halyard running back to the cabin top. I have chosen to have mine running down to the mast winch. One of the reasons, as you have pointed out is the excess clutter of lines at the helm. Also, if your main halyard runs to the cabin top then probably all of the reefing lines have to run there too. My preference is to keep it simple.
