Backstay adjustment

Excellent videos! Thanks

A coment on the backstay video. I have a masthead rig and always thought the reason for tighening up on the backstay when going to windward was to help reduce the sag on the forestay. No mention was made of that in the video. Also a general question about tension adjustment on the rig. The other day I was on the boat (a Tayana 37) here on the Cheaspeake Bay and the forestay was doing a hula dance of sorts. I think it hit the natural frequency. I can measure tension in all the 1x19 wires on the boat(using the folding rule method as outlined by Selden), but can not measure the forestay due to the Pro Furl furler on the forestay. If the mast does not bend is the tension in the backstay the same in the forestay accounting for geometry between the two wires? I'm not sure if in a mast head rig which I have if my mast bends much fore and aft..... if at all.

The main purpose of the BS is not to tighten the forestay..it does that on Masthead rigs as a consequence..BUT that is not its purpose.

No mention was made of that in the video.

See above why not..it's not its purpose. BUT I do mention in the BS video that as a consequence of tensioning the BS, the forestay gets tensioned too Even made a drwing of it.

Also a general question about tension adjustment on the rig. The other day I was on the boat (a Tayana 37) here on the Cheaspeake Bay and the forestay was doing a hula dance of sorts. I think it hit the natural frequency. I can measure tension in all the 1x19 wires on the boat(using the folding rule method as outlined by Selden), but can not measure the forestay due to the Pro Furl furler on the forestay.

Yes you can, somewhere in your furler track there is a place to open it that gives access to the forestay cable, look for it, please, nornmally at the base.

If the mast does not bend is the tension in the backstay the same in the forestay accounting for geometry between the two wires? I'm not sure if in a mast head rig which I have if my mast bends much fore and aft..... if at all.

Please look at the HEAD SAIL video..in there you cann see the effects and consequences of forestay tension and head sail halyard tension
