Re: Minimum reasonable breaking load for forestay of 31' ketch?

7/16" on a 32' boat? no. 1/4" would be used on most boat that size. 2700kg is a bit should be ok. if you have 5/16" then it would be a bit light. I have a 33" racer and the forestay is 3600 kg breaking strength. and a lot more sail area on the main mast then a Berwick
