Jib Sheeting

You need to ensure your boat can sheet the jib correctly for the full range of conditions. That is you will need to be able to adjust the jib sheet lead both inboard/outboard and fore/aft. This is generally done with a barber hauler system which moves the first block that the jib sheet is fed through.
