Many times your jib/genoa sheet hangs up on the wiring entering the mast, sometimes to the point of damaging the wiring. Here is a solution that Norm Pookman has used for 5 years.
When it comes time to take the mast down for the winter, pull the pin on the deck fitting, flip the guide up and secure it against the mast with a bungee cord.
2- Nylon bimini external eye ends
2 -Nylon bimini deck hinges horizontal
1 -piece 3/4 " stainless tubing about 14 " in length
