You pretty much have it...The track is for tensioning....forward to tighten aft to loosen...That way mainly because when playing with your back stay tension you can quickly adjust your inter stay tension ....not so easily done with a hayfield to a single anchor point like mine.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
