I’ve thought about this a bit. Luckily never had to deploy our JSD. BUT, Have been thinking of an easy yoke out of dynama: which we cary a bit of on the boat. A sling between the aft cleat and the next aft let on the same side. Find the point where the two are equally loaded and then tie a knot in the sling, so that both cleats are as equally loaded as possible. The knot is required so as there is no sawing through the bridle attachment of the JSD. Our aft cleats are pretty beefy, but if you get underneath, its easy to acknowledge, they could fail. I think a pair of cleats (simultaneously loaded) on each side, as described would be better, but would love other thoughts on the proposed.
If it's hard to imagine I can try and describe better, or make a drawing.
