As you can see from the photos of the Super Nirvana project, Dennis has done what Templus was suggesting, only in a more refined way.

I am easily confused and am just wondering what benifit we'd get from doing that?


I'm sorry, I did not recognize the line attaching the jib boom to the tie down via the grommet was in fact a "loosely tied" line [looked taught] (substituting for the) "electrical cable tie". This is where my foot got in my mouth.

However, yes, I was suggesting a second grommet, forward of the tag with the "A" on it and allowing the "electrical cable tie" to move between the two grommets. Of course a neatly tied line would 'look' nicer and accomplish the same thing. Sounds too sloppy now that I've been informed the picture is of a "loose" line between the deck and the grommet.

That's a newbie for ya!
