Greetings from sunny San Diego on Army-Navy Saturday!!

Getting ready to put a new Harken jib furler/reefer on an Ericson 35 (c.1985)

It's a family boat with my 91 yr.old dad as primary captain! (Meself and 2 brothers also take her out...)


Wondering if we should replace the headstay as well....?

Seadog,

I was out on a sail. The wind was around 12 knots, and gusting slightly. We reached the island, the wind calmed and it became a beautiful night. Next morning it was nearing time to leave for an easy sail in a slight breeze, around 5 knots, so I tidied up.On a whim I lifted the shroud covers to find a lower shroud down to 6 wires. We made it back on a single tack because the wind allowed this shroud to be slack. A new stay is $150 of cheap peace mind especially when it's covered with a roller furling.

Don
