Spreaders on the Apache/Baby Stay?
Just went up the mast on my "new" Chris Craft apache and my wooden spreaders are looking pretty rough....In the next year I'm planning on heading to the Carribean/South America and I know they're going to need to be replaced. Anyone have any advice on spreader replacement for this boat?
Also, the previous owner added a bow sprint with a nice big genoa on it, but there's also what he called a "baby stay," it's not rigged up with any thing, but the stay would attach 2/3rds up the mast and it's probably 4 ft before the beginning of the bow sprint, what sail would this be used for? Could I use it similar to a cutter with a smaller hank on jib?
