Genie-

Ow... ow... that sounds really painful. Get well soon.

BTW, I think you're talking about an inner forestay, not a forestay, since the J40 has a forestay...or the mast would fall down.

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.

Thanks for your good wishes, Saildog. I've always called the forwardmost stay the headstay and the next one in the forestay, except on square riggers and others that fly three or four headsails, where the first one is called the flying jib stay. But, as usual, I could stand corrected.

There is also one called a babystay, which controls the lower portion of the mast, but carries no sail.

I have far too many changes yet to make and far too many already completed to list here.

However, the most recent change/upgrade arrived in the mail this afternoon. Behold my new mainsheet tackle system:

How about a complete change of boat. I would, make that will, change that boat from a 20' racing sled like you see in my Avatar to something like a Bristol 45.5CC.

I'm going to need a good lesson in fiberglass work.

That's the approach I'm taking Jeff - the boat's not broken, just doesn't fit the two of us anymore.

So in this situation, instead of trying to modify it to fit us, or us to fit it, we've decided to replace it with another . . . what that will be has yet to be determined however.
