    I have seen that there are at least two types of single-line-reefing systems (e.g. those made by z spars uk) System 1 is Continous Single line reefing system, System 2 is Single line reefing with in-boom tackle.
    Can anyone tell me which system is better? What would be preferable on a 47 footer cruiser?
