Re: What can i use to cover my stays?
Hi, I use a length of white waste pipe on my side stays/shrouds to protect the genoa. Bought them at a diy store for £2 for a 2 meter length. The manufacturers imprint wiped off with acetone. You have to be able to take the stay down to slip them over the wire. There are also pipe covers available here to clip around central heating pipes (they have a seam all the way along) if you don't want to take the stay off.
Yet my heart hammers now, yearning anew
wanting the steep salt-water road
longing with lust to roam rough seas, alone
to seek out some far foreign shore
