Re: Removable Forestay

We take our inner stay off, but with the hanked on sail off. We have the earlier version of the curved thing on p. 35 of the catalog above the stay goes around on pipe structure that protects a Dorade vent. The tack is attached to a large U-bolt that is positioned so that when the Highfield lever is closed it is all snug. On the deck I have along, thin pad of Starboard that protects the deck from chafe. You should be able to do something similar with the sail on.just be careful not to kink the foil on the furler.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
