Inhaul rigging topic

I am using a 3mm line to go through a block on the mast,through the tack and then around the mast. I am then putting the line either through the gooseneck fitting or down the sail track with a figure of eight knot as a stopper. I am struggling to loosen and derig this knot after sailing.

Your ideas?

Ian, try a "double figure of eight" which is easier to undo. (You pass the end of the rope twice round the long bit before feeding it back through the hole.)
