I have a similar question. I have a topping lift for the spinnaker pole on my 1978 S2 7.3 and would like to have a foreguy as well. Any ideas on rigging the foreguy. I'm not interested in having a permanent installation (installed through the foredeck). What do you think about attaching a line side to side (via the toe rail) with a swivel block attached at the center? This would get me a better placement than running the fore guy through a block at the bow.

I currently have two blocks at the base of the mast and I'm using one for the spinnaker halyard and the other for the topping lift.

Any help is much appreciated.

Margaret
