Singlehanded Running Backs
I was looking at a 25 foot boat to take cruising Puget Sound this summer and it has running backstays.
How hard would these be for me to singlehand? And how dangerous are they? I don't want to lose the mast of course.
I guess I'm wondering if it would be completely impractical or if maybe it would be fun?
I used to do the running backs on some bigger race boats I crewed on, It's been a while though.
