Mostly nothing - 18 boats here and only one has a foreguy, everyone else uses the twings and calls it good enough. If I was running one I'd go through a cheek block on the mast and then a swivelling fairlead/cam cleat combo a few inches back from that. Sounds like yours goes through a turning block almost at the bow?? Man that must be slow & in the way a lot at mark roundings (assuming you race)
