Genoa sheeting on R38

Fouling with lifelines.
Posted: 15 Feb 2002 - By: Jones
The sheets on the genoa of R38 are always on the wrong side of the lifelines. When close hauled the sheets come over the top of the lifelines, but when freed off they need to be threaded through the lifelines to avoid chafe. Has any member come across a device to adjust the lifelines to suite? We do not have a gangway break in the top l/line, which I suppose is one solution.
