It’s cheaper, if you’ve ever done inset face frame cabinets or mortise and tenon it’s a lot like it ....always having to remember to add material for the joints, seams and finished edge

I found it easy to follow the concepts, but the motor skills for long straight seams just aren't there yet. Plus her machine is a bit *touchy*. I think it sews in MPH.

This thread contains a number of alternatives. It is probably more important that you have jack lines and use them than the "best" configuration. I have 3 pad eyes - in front of the mast, in cockpit just out of the cabin and another aft of the wheel. The one aft of the wheel is used the most. I also run two jack lines - port and starboard - from the bow cleat to the aft cleat. The jack lines were used mostly for dousing the main. As I aged gracefully, I replaced the useless Dutchman system and put in lazy jacks and a stack pak - now I rarely go forward to douse the main.
