What the heck are these stay like things for?
Okay, finally going to be putting my redone Grampian in the water next week. I have another problem/question which none of the guys I talked to at the Marina seem to be able to answer. I have two "stays" that are attached about 3/4 of the way up my mast. They each have a small block/pulley on the end of them, but they are not long enough to attach to anything. They end about 4 feet above the boom. I am assuming they have something to do with bringing the sail down, but I am stumped. A few of the guys I have asked do a lot of sailing, but no one could explain to me how these are used. I will try and take a picture this afternoon to help explain it.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
What is left to do...Sand and paint the deck, repair the sails, glass in the new right bulkhead, rebuild the forward seat, paint the inside of the boat, replace the vinyl on the pop top hinge, put on bottomkote, and then toss the whole mess in the water to see if it floats! Looks like I have a busy few days ahead of me!
