Ok, so this is likely going to be a real novice question, but here goes anyway :)
You (and others) mention running your outhaul line back to the boom and through some blocks down and back to the cockpit.
Since most of the folks speaking of doing this have larger sailboats (that I would imagine don't often remove their main sail) moored or in a marina with a sailcover on, why would you want to go through this trouble for a line that from my limited knowledge would be relatively stationary?
Also, any suggestions on color 'codes' for my running rigging?
