We removed our inner forestay on Jo Beth (a 34, not a 37...) as it was in the way with regard to our current sailing practices - mostly inshore and near coastal, lots of tacking, etc. When we're offshore more regularly and making longer runs, we plan to put it back up. Besides, our running backs need replacing as does the staysail itself.
However, I am wondering: we've been doing lots of rigging
updates (new traveler, halyards, sheets, taken the Yankee down and put the 120 on the forestay, etc.) and haven't sailed yet without the inner forestay in place. Has anyone found it necessary to tweak or fine-tune-adjust the standing rigging
