Baby Stay setup, how does this one work?

Saw this photo while checking out the competition of other CS34s for sale. I have the same baby stay. One of the things I was thinking of doing was rigging it to be removed on the downwind so it won't be in the way of the pole. How do you think this set up works? What is it for, adjustment, removal, something else? My guess is that it is led back to the winch to aid in reattaching it.

Good question BF - I have a baby stay setup as well but its on two carriages that run ontop of a deck traveler that is about 4 feet long, free running at that for the length of the track.... so will be interested in hearing how to rig and use myself...as I am sure the principles are the same...

To me that just looks like the downhaul line stored by clipping it to the turnbuckle. The highfield lever style turnbuckle is what you would want if you wish to remove the stay from the deck quickly. See here:

The ABI hyfield levers should do the trick... but CS Johnson makes some smaller, much more affordable ones. Depending on the load requirements, you might be able to use the CS Johnson ones...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I don't think the line and block have anything to do with derigging the baby stay. I can't see anyone using a line led over a hatch that way.
I'm not sure what it's for but it's apparently just attached there temporarily.

The babystay on my friend's C&C 38 is on a small genoa track section and has a line-control setup much like a genoa car fairlead would. The car can be moved forward to tension the babystay or moved aft to ease the babystay.

You could do much the same on your boat, if you made the babystay a bit longer and added a section of genny track just forward of that hatch.

Like Keelhaulin', I'm pretty sure that's just a pole downhaul stowed on the babystay fitting....

Yes, I think you guys are right about it just being stored there. I think the block threw me off. Thanks all!
