Considering a 2:1 main halyard for an Andrews 28. Main is 234 ft. sq. and sail in windy area (SF Bay and offshore). Wondering about advantages (easier hoisting) and disadvantages (2x halyard length) as well as hardware expected loads and specific recommendations. Tylaska makes sheaved and non-sheaved halyard shackles that would appear to be a good fit but sure there are others.
2:1 on a 28 seems overkill - extra spaghetti and endless work out.
