continuous halyard tensioner ? huh? what is this device?


It can be rigged several different ways. Our is rigged on a double ended bunji to our tack line. The ends of the bunji turn around blocks and/or rings near the front beam and come through grommets at the back of the trampoline where they terminate in large plastic rings. The halyard goes through both of these rings in addition to it's normal routing. This way, when the spinnaker is snuffed and the tack line is extended through the pole into the snuffer bag, the bunji is pulled tight and the halyard is neatly pulled and spread out toward the rear beam. Once the tack line is pulled and the tack of the spinnaker makes it to the end of the pole, the new slack in the tack line loosens the bunji and allows the halyard more room to do it's thing.

I've now been sailing extensively with the new setup and it works very well.

I'm a happy camper. The halyard no longer gets caught all the time (it can still snag if I don't watch what I'm doing, like any other cat I guess).
The vertical battens and sheeting from the forward beam have proven a blessing. No more wires to skin my shins on and it still helps tacking.
I'm keeping it set up this way for sure.

Hey--this sounds great--can you send a picture or a diagram--visuals would help understand the set-up. Thanks!
