I was thinking about that. This boat is a hydrofoil so it puts an enormous amount of pressure on the stays. I guess turnbuckles will not weaken the strength of the stay?

That's only part of the problem. HobieCats are not meant to be moored - period. If you leave a traditional cat (fiberglass sandwich construction ie. the 16, 17 18...) in the water, it will become...

moored windrider

Well, I found out today that the forestay broke. That is an interesting area to fail. I would expect the forestay to be one of the more resilient parts of the boat.

I need to modify the mast so...

I am trying to moor a trimaran 17 foot with a hydrofoil system. The hydrofoils are like wings that are under the boat. This makes mooring difficult because they will easily cut through mooring...
