Re: Interesting Sailboats

Smart to keep the tensioner on deck as opposed to another line in the mast. I like the simplicity and design. I imagine there is a pully system under the deck to distribute the pressure of the tensioner. ??

The bigger issue I see with this setup on the pogo is the sheets and the more complex system without the foresail sheet tracks. Not sure you can rig 2 lines thru these.

If there enough slack on the tensioner to lash the storm "étai" to the mast leaving room for the Genoa or do you need to drop it entirely? If you could lash it to the mast you could then set up the sheets and clip the sail from the mast (stable), and then just pull it forward off the tensioner and raise..?
