we have a Harken MkII, the previous owner of the boat got it as a kit. Installing a kit such as the one above involves cutting the bottom end of the forestay a predetermined amount in order to facilitate the height of the drum unit and it's fittings, then the extruded profile that holds the luff tape is worn onto the forestay.
In this case forestay tension is adjusted by tightening the backstay.
