Halyard Mistake!

Many sailors disconnect their halyard from the sail and shackle it to the boom, alongside the CradleCover. This causes the halyard to rub and chafe the cover, leaving scuff makes at least, holes at worst. Don’t disconnect your halyard!

In the photo to the left, the sailor is using the forward-most web loops for the lazy jacks.  These are there to solve the halyard issue.  You can just leave the halyard attached to the sail and use the nearby forward-most web loops to pull it aft away from the mast with a short line or carabiner.
