Re: Bow Plate Rigging

The sail runs up your Headstay, Hank on or Roller furl either one uses the headstay for support. Do you have something diferent. Either way the headstay will be on the heaviest attachment on the head plate. Pictures would help. New Boat to you?

Re: Bow Plate Rigging

My boat is of a similar vintage and size. My stem fitting looks like this:

(Photo from eBay, not my boat)

I connect my forestay to the middle fitting and connect the tack of the jib behind it. This leaves the front one open, where I could presumably connect an asymmetrical spinnaker or a jib downhaul. I usually leave it open.

Caveat: I have no idea if this is the best practice. It may be better to have the forestay all the way at the front, I don't know.

Re: Bow Plate Rigging

This is from an 1974 O'Day 20 I owned for 3-4years


The forestay, as @Minnesail pointed, to the middle fitting. But I have the extra loop aft to attach the jib tack.
