On my Venture there's a clamp gizmo(pet peeve for someone I'm sure)above the backstay bridle, it has a piece of 1/8 nylon line with a snap shackle. Works fine. The only problem was,,,,, the first time out I sailed around for a couple hours before I realized it should be unhooked while underway,,,DOH. She sails better when the boom can go from side to side.
Where are we going, and why am I in this handbasket?
