Although I wonder if forward support is the issue... The swept back spreaders are pushing forward already... maybe you need some stays in back like short running back stays to the aft chainplate on each side....?
This pumping is not uncommon even on older style rigs....
One is confused! What the hell would you gain by putting in a split baby stay? It'd completely screw up getting the jib
to set properly in any case. A baby staywanted to know what a Hoyt is usually there to stiffen up the rig in the fore/aft line, the lowers should limit athwartships displacement
on the mast, and the runners would work in conjunction with the baby stay. Given the babystay doesn't seem to be the desired option some diamonds should go some way towards stiffening the mast in column, and the runners would help to stop the pumping, though without foreward suport I doubt they'd copletely eliminate it. The aft raked spreaders are hoing to put some pre bend in the mast which should flatten the sail and so long as the runners are coming from somewhere near the spreaders, they should work against them and at least ease the pumping. Another thing is if your main is stretched/too full, that isn't going to help the situation either. For the lady who wanted to know what a Hoyt jib
is, it's a self tacking one. Hope this helps
