Double headrig

Hi All,

Does anybody have experience, on installing second forestay.
How do you calculate distance aft. off original headstay, do you need to alter angle or not, is there a relation to L.O.A., what''s the effect on steering etc.

One useful source of info for answering your question is the archived threads at Brion Toss'' site -

If you''re wanting to ''modify'' what is a sloop rig, you might want to consider a Solent Stay vs. a staysail or a parallel forestay. There are numerous threads on these topics in Brion''s archives.
