Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Forestay attachment Re: Forestay attachments


in addition to previous replies. I use a small piece of line to provide the tension to keep the mast up when the genoa is not hoisted – no probelms at all. I have seen a shroud plate used instead which will work fine if you don’t trust string. I wonder if the bottlescrew method is for those who are using furling gear? Though I can’t see an advantage.
