Ray, This discussion has reminded me of a job I did in someones driveway years ago.
I replaced the standing rigging on a little trailerable boat.
The forestay was attached to a piece of line which was led from the cockpit, Under the deck and out through a sheave box at the bow.
This allow the line to be controlled without going forward.
I think there was a cam-cleat or something in the cockpit.
