Re: Farr Ims 40.7 and possibility of putting aft swept back wire?
Yes It is Farr 40.7 IMS (1993) with running backstays built in NZ.
As your recomendation, I was thinking about permanant backstay but the top of mast is so flexible that it wouldn't help to keep it upright.
The tentionest part in downwind is the place around the running backstay attached on mast so I thought to put permanant stays there from.
I would like to know even if sacrify her performance, will it do the job like running backstay when it's mistaken?
Would you belive in there is no yacht rigger specialty here in Korean?
I am asking around to get some idea for that and in next week,
I will get some boat workers to do that job!
I asked to farr design office about reconnecting mast
(by reveting & wellding after putting additional aluminium inside and outside)
and this question!
They just said "buy new one!" that's all !
