Since I singlehand the boat most of the time, I wanted to run the control lines aft. After doodling with a lot of turning blocks, bails at the base of the mast, etc. It came to me that the mast is easily reached from the cockpit. 2 more of the Ronstan RF5 swiveling blocks provide for simple halyard handling. In the picture, the jib and spinnaker halyards end here. Once the roller furling is installed it will be spinnaker and main. The small clamcleat is for the mainsail downhaul.
