I had a nother post that must have been deleted.

An A frame building is usually 18/12 or 20/12 roof pitch and would not hold snow nor a person. I think this is one of the benefits of an a frame building.

Yes this is 20/12
I had to put up roof jacks and a 2x10 to work on the roof
Last time I went up during the winter, there was snow on the roof (I'd say 6 inches) compared to 3 ft on the ground.

If it hasn't caused any problem for 40 to 50 years I can't imagine why you would spend any time fixing something that isn't broke. But if you really need a project to keep you off the streets (LOL) then then just apply some construction adhesive to the top of the rafter to glue it to the sheathing rather than trying any nails.
