You guys have confused this bumpkin. I have what I thought were running backs on my Santana 35, and the tangs for their attachment are on the stern below the toe rail and outside the lifelines - as far back on the boat as you can go. They are still in the way when in use, so I have disabled them since I singlehand in light winds most of the time, but I also thought that their purpose was to better control the mast bend when racing.
