Norm and Aaron,

Many thanks for the clarification on that. That helps with the setup greatly. My first deployment of the running backstays was in very light wind so they were mostly there for testing purposes. The way you describe running only a single back stay at a time with the main up makes sense. Thanks for helping with that, I'll remember to use a preventer when they are deployed as well.

Carl

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
