HALYARD STOPPERS (2000-10-18)
Q1: Can extra halyard stoppers be installed in tandem to prevent halyard slippage?
A1: No. There are a number of solutions to this problem which are legal, including jacketing the halyards or maintaining/improving the existing single stoppers. The installation of additional stoppers complicates the rigging of the boat and can be perceived as an advantage in adjusting tension of the halyards.
