Re: I tried a bowline but it didn't work as well for me.

With the buntline hitch aft of the cheek block, no need for the line to slide. My current reefing is internal with clew reefing lines exiting the aft end of the boom through the clew reefing cringle and back to the boom so works best if line slides along the boom with a bowline. Last post should have read 'Cleats on the mast' not the boom.
