Gene T's point is a valid one... but did you break the shroud or the chainplate, or something else?? BTW, shrouds are port and starboard of the mast, and stays are fore and aft of the mast. There is no stay on the starboard side of the boat as a general rule.

If it was the chain plate or shroud, then you probably should have a rigger come in and look at your standing rigging, or inspect it yourself. Given that you've broken something, you will probably also want to check the mast head fittings for all of the rigging, but I would highly recommend you not use a bosun's chair until the rigging has been inspected and passed the inspection... doing otherwise is a good way to earn a Darwin award.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
