Just re-launched after a haul out
. During the travel lifting it was necessary to disconnect both head
stay (bowsprit issue), and staysail stay in order to clear the lift
truck beam. Everything went well and we are now back in the water
It seems that the fitting on the furler
now will not reach the deck
fitting on either stay. The back stays have been slacked as well as the running back stays. Still I have about 1/2" gap or so between both the deck
fittings and drum toggles.
If I removed the torque housing, and the lower nut and star washer under each drum and let them fall, would turning the drum, while holding the stay, lengthen the stay enough or at all, to reach the deck fitting? Looking for the book but have not found it yet. Been awhile since I have had to monkey with the furlers.
Greatfull for any input or suggestions.
