Re: Stay and tack adjustment

well at least now I know what it's called
Maybe I'll just go back to the off center arrangement. I could see the sail not setting as well on one tack though.
I think the "bale" would be strong but I too was wondering about the wandering back and forth deal. a couple of beads welded on the bottom a 1/4" apart could work
Perhaps I'll take it back though.
Maybe I'll see if I can swage up a pair of short lengths of wire , attach them to both sides and attach the forsestay to both instead

Which begs my original question
Does it really matter if they're both attached to the same point ?
(keeping in mind the 12" of wire on the foresail tack)
