i have harkin roller furling on the headsail. the PO had a forward rake in the mast. i could not back it off far enough & the headstay needed to be replaced anyway, so i got a longer one with a swaged eye on the top & cut it so it would be 2" longer. i put a stayloc stud on the bottom to screw into the harken drum. it worked out fine. i have a wheel on the backstay to adjust tension. the harken manual gave me the step by step instructions to get the job done.
Liberals are people who care about others. Freethinkers are not constrained by the myths of religion.
