    Arrrggghhhhh!!!! Been caught for talking too fast without paying good attention!!! Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa, ideo precor...etc....

    You are damned right: it is 1:1 at the tack, and 2:1 at the clew!

    Besides that: yes, rigging reefing lines entirely on one side of the sail makes it much easier (and more neat) that the traditional rigging each side of it.
