Thanks Sailingdog, all of this is somewhat new to me. I know two of the three you mentioned but who is “LSD”? Is it worth looking at?
All the best,

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.

Turnbuckles

Same thing almost happened to me. Single handing my 37 footer in winter on the Chesapeake Bay....tacking up wind withthe storm jib and single reef in 20 knot winds. Got back to the marina and the turnbuckle gives up because the threads are worn and the screw slides right out releasing the headstay. Close call. Replaced all the turnbuckles after that one....

I just missed being out during a dismasting. A boat I normally crewed on lost its rig during a race. I normally was the backstay man (running backsays), but I had a foot in a splint from an injury, so I raced in an S boat instead of moving around a open transomed boat with a bum foot. Fortunately no one was hurt, and they got a tow back to the yacht club, because the outboard wasn't normally kept in the boat to save weight.

Actually that mast had tubular modular adjusting spreaders (you could adjust back sweep from down in the deck) that were swept bak quite normally, the system had a rotating turnbuckle in the front attachment.

Mine are different, they are back/forward swept. The idea is to have more space it bring the clew of a baten genoa, because the "belly" is not measured in the rating, just the P, I J etc. So call it a loop hole
