Thanks to all the forum responses. In response to questions there is no lateral component as measured from toe-rail starboard and port. As to the PO not shortening the forestay within the furler, I do not understand how that would produce the aft bend. As mentioned at the start of the thread I did shorten the forestay but the bend remains. I live in Seattle and maybe Boeing could shed some light on "aluminum creep". Thanks again for the responses.
