Thanks for an excellent set of instructions.
I have read through your post a couple of times already but I still need to reread it several times more to appreciate all its contents.
There are 2 comments I would like to make, always with due respect.
1. it would help to define the various types of stays on the mast for us non English readers.This to unsure that we correctly tighten the correct stay.
2. At one point you said you calculated the strength to be 15% of breaking strength. How do you arrive at this figure?
By the way you are spot on in your DISCLAIMER.
