When getting on close reach with the spinnaker pole on the forestay, the guy really pressures the stanchions and lifelines, which can't be good long-term.

Saw a lot of Jockey pools on older racing boats but no more know, although they seem the perfect answer to stanchion destruction and rather appealing to me.

How did we get talked out of it and can we still get them?

If there are separate sheets and guys, doesn't it help to lead the guys from a block just aft of the rigging? Do you still get a lot of load on the rigging with the guys there or do you have the guy blocks further aft?

+1
when the pole is forward it clears the lifelines and when the pole is squared the loads are low enough to not be a problem

They are certainly still available and are used on a lot of boats.
