Re: Rotten Luck - Stays & Dinghy Question
Back stay broke 3 weeks ago. 5' seas 10 -15 knots winds. Was lucky the whole rig didn't come down. To my sons quick thinking, drop sails, tighten topping lift and main sheets, snatch block, line, secure line to back stay and in snatch block then to wench... Motored on in about 12 miles. To make a long story short, replaced it all the next week. You should do the same...
