Re: Back stay boom supporter broke - now what?

That thought had occurred to me as well, if the pigtail went, what's the backstay look like?
Although one of the reasons the pigtails are frowned on, is because they get abused if you forget to unclip them and get into a nasty jibe/winshift. A great way to remove a backstay.
Only 1 vote for a boomkicker besides me... Since I've not owned one, maybe they are more hassle then they are worth. My top lift is heavy 5/16... way bigger than it needs to be. 1/4 or smaller maybe I'd like it more.
Currently boatless - Everyone's boat is perfect, except the $10,000 in rigging it requires to get it fully functional again.
