Re: Forestay toggle(s)

i helped bring a 42ft vagabond from spain to antigua. the next year we were heading to florida. in the mona passage heading for the dominican republic the forestay broke in a blow. the boat had french masts with ball swaged to the stay on top. under tension it could not flex and the wire broke. that is why i prefer toggles.

Liberals are people who care about others. Freethinkers are not constrained by the myths of religion.
