Have you ever cursed and sworn, even gently, as you try to tie the knot in the mast ram string in exactly the right place??? Or bumped your head doing it?!?!
Well how about this very neat arrangement….?? (Double click photo to enlarge) The line has to be tapered and a soft loop spliced in the end. Then you just need a button on the mast ram arm to slip the loop over. First time right, every time. This idea was seen on a boat finished by Phil Evans.
