You know those random thoughts that hit you in the middle of the night?
Yup. I realized (around 3:14am) that my question was very much a 'rooky' one.
How could I let out the main sheet if the boom is tied to the backstay?
So, I guess I'll have to figure out how to rig a new topping lift.
I SERIOUSLY don't want to go up the mast myself, so I'll probably end up using the stay clip for a few weeks (yet to launch this year) and if I really miss the topping lift, I'll hire someone to do it for me. (fear of heights).
BTW, around 3:16am, I was on to thinking about how I might be able to use a homemade lazyjack system (or sorts) to double as topping lift... Nuts again?
