In reference to the antirotation arms on the swivel at the head of the
jib. Should those arms point forward or aft? Thanks Peter

Hello Peter,
They should point aft and it is very important that the ballooner
halyard is in their V because otherwise it will have a foul lead and
will chafe/break causing the balooner or you, if you are using it to
go up the mast, to come down the very quick way.

Best wishes, Anne and John, SM 319
