Symphonie Baby Stay

It was not all that uncommon in the 1970''s to have a highfield lever and quick release pin for removing the baby stay for dip pole jibing. Alternatively the babystay would be made up on a block and tackle and would be eased back to the mast during a dip pole jibe. That said, it was not all that unusual to do an end for end jibe, even on a pretty big boat that had a babystay.
