Re: Stay and tack adjustment

The previous owner installed an anchor roller where the forestay fitting used to be.
And then drilled 2 holes in one side (offset an inch or so to starboard) for the forestay and the foresail tack. I wanted to center it again and to do so I installed a half circle SS fitting slightly forward of both holes. for both to attach to

The tack of my foresail currently attaches to an approximently 12" long length of wire bringing it up off the deck. This seems to be normal with Danicas and might have to do with the cabin height.
