Streaker control line

I am a constant bimbler

Have been playing with my Streaker control lines again. Kicker not changed, line goes from the cleat with a split tail to each gunwale and taken away by elastic. The outhaul has a line which then goes back to the thwart, through an eye across to the other side of the thwart another eye and to the tail of the downhaul. This system saves a lot of complexity and hardware compared to the standard Streaker setup and adjustability is good. If the control on the leeward side needs pulling the line to windward is pulled through the two eyes and easily controlled.
