Owners manual, ha. I have looked at the online version and it seems more of a brochure. I bet that the Hunters manuel does make a point about it as most Hunters don't have back stays I believe. I am not against having another rigging company come out and do it right, but that will be come summer when my paycheck gets a bit more plump. I am considering doing it the way Sailingfool recomended for the time being as I plan to replace the back stay and possibly the port and starboard stays.

Anyone else think that sf's way is not a good idea and possiblly why and or why not to do it one way or another. Also what type of tools do riggers use? I was guessing it was probablly like a torque style wrinch.
