Hi Brian,

I know of one Pretorien that I believe uses their baby stay that way. I believe that they have a removable fitting on the deck so they can move it out of the way to store their dinghy also.

The issue, I believe, is that the baby stay is located lower on the mast than the running backs and so you can induce a mast bend at that location if you are adding a load to the baby stay that it wasn't intended for.
