Pearson 10m Foredeck / Spinnaker
The 10M is a great boat, I've had mine for for about five years now and have sadly only flown the spinnaker about 2-3 X a year.
Some might say; (including my wife) "you can get 8.5 knots on a reach, whatdoya need a spinnaker for" - Because fast is fun, I reply, and sometimes we have to go downwind.
I've a favor to ask of you and others who might be reading. In your thread you mentioned a baby stay. I've got a track that runs the length of the fore deck - right down the middle, and was wondering what the heck this was for?
Are they meant to be used as a mount point for a baby stay, or is it meant for something else?
I've asked another 10M owner in my area and he wasn;t sure either ....
I know my boat was raced aggressively in her younger years, given the number of sails I got with her, any other comments are welcomed.
Also if anyone has pictures of this thing being used as a stay or.......?
They're worth 1000 words.....
