Re: Tayana Vancouver 42 "cow-catcher"
that rig looks like it has intermediate aft stays attached to the base of the upper spreaders and fastened to a chainplate aft of the mast base. those stays don't go through the lower spreader like it would if it had the diamonds. This might be why it is not rigged with the diamond spreaders that support the inner forestay. those aft stays could also be running backstays that have been stored forward when not being used.
