That or flexible plastic tubing sticking up at an angle-flexible will be less likely to rip the spinnaker if/when the takedown goes bad some day and the kit goes around the bow

Do you have a bow pulpit or bow "doinker" to prevent the
guy from sliding down the forestay and falling off / over the front of the boat
and going under the bow? If not, an 8" to 1' long piece of 1/4"
PVC pipe and some duck tape might do the trick.

Tried a poleless leward takedown the other day. Blew the afterguy,
gathered the foot, blew the halyard, gathered in cabin, ran over
afterguy. It appears some tension needs to be kept on the afterguy when
releasing but how do you do this? 1 wrap on winch? ratchet block in ratchet
mode? or ?????????????
