    Dry-test:

    - Option 4d: Steel-Ring with small block hanging in tumb-cleat.

    A new Option 5: Similar to Option 2, but only 2 Blocks. Sheet fixed onto shackle at traveller between quarter-knees.

    Advantage compared to Option 2: Length of sheet ok now, one block less. (same sheet as for Option 2 not long enough for running with the wind).

    Dry-Test Option 5:

    Video showing Option 5 (dry-test):

    Note in video below: "safety-line" connected to main-sheet and side-bench near thwart. Needed in case I loose sheet and cannot reach end of sheet any more, as it could end in fwrd block, too far fwrd and on the leeside. This would be a problem in windy condition as one could not hang out to lee (Risk of capsize).
