Gooood morning everyone,
I am looking at a Beneteau Oceanis
461, and I need your help in schooling me on backstays
Basically I noticed that the 461 has two backstays
that attach to the starboard and port sides of the transom, rather than having a single
backstay in the middle of the boat. Is there any difference to this design, and does it have drawbacks?
Also, I notice that many people like to upgrade to a hydraulic backstay. Is this possible when having two? Would I have to upgrade both of them?
The yacht I'm considering is properly outfitted to do some serious cruising, which is why I'm trying to figure out if the backstays are an issue worth addressing, or if I'll be fine. Thanks!
