Like everyone else, I am looking for the best value when shopping for this. I don't have a specific price point yet as I am still looking around.
My stays are 6 months old. (There we go again, more money than the boat is worth
) I will make sure that the stay is toggled on both ends with whatever furler I install.
As a matter of interest, I paid a smidgeon under $600 for my FF6. I replaced the forestay, but only because it was very old and worn. You certainly won't want to replace a 6 month old stay if you can possibly avoid it, assuming that the toggle issue doesn't rear its ugly head.
It may also be worth noting that I replaced the stay and the furler with the mast up. It was really straightforward and I am not sure how possible this would be with eg an Alado.
Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.
I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
