I wish to fit cleats and fairleads for the jib . Is it preferable to locate them on the gunwhale or the thwart. I will mostly be sailing single handed. Any dimensions for the location would be appreciated.
I have just moved mine to the deck top from the gunnels, only problem ripped the backside out of my gortex trousers at the weekend.
If you want thwart sheeting I think your sails have to be made specifically for it.
