Split Back-stay tension-er on a Ketch
I would like a way to adjust my back-stay tension on the main mast of my Ketch .
Is this accomplished the same way as a split back-stay on a sloop?...with some sort of car and block and tackle?
I dont see how this would not be a real mess to contain, as the split in my back-stay is at least 1/3 to half way up the leach of my Main sail...it has to be to clear the mizzen shrouds.

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.
The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
