Hi all -
I have recently upgraded from a 25' full keel
to a 33' Carter and the rig is much more complex.
While most of it is straight forward, the new boat has an adjustable inner forestay, which is on a track with a guide sheet back to the cockpit
. Can anyone enlighten me as to how this is best used to tune the rig - eg do you pull it forward in tandem with putting tension on the hydraulic backstay to get bend in the mast
in heavy weather
? Or is that completely wrong?
Advice gratefully accepted!
