Re: 07 OC50 removeable forestay

Thanks for the quick answere.
I checked from the webside of Jahnson Marine.
My question: The forestay then will push the mast while sailing in waves.
I think, I can't increase the tension so much to prevent the stay pushing the mast.

At the moment, we pull it to the buttom of the shrouds. But so the stay touchs the saling......So we are looking for a better solution.

as a newbi:

how to fix a removeable forstay -- not a furling version - while sailing the genoa?

How to fix it?
vertical in front of the mast is not possible, because the length is to big.
Does anyone have some pictures ?

Thanks alot for comments
