Well, at least use the spinnaker halyard as a topping lift. Because it is at the hounds where the mast can take much more abuse without risk of bending it permanently.

You may not be sleeping in it if it gets rough but the tent and the rig will still get a pounding if you are at home sleeping. I would sleep better if the tent and boom rest on a crutch rather then on a topping lift. BTW, we haven’t discussed chaffing of the topping lift yet…. 😉
