Removable inner stay tension
I bought a boat that has a removable inner forestay. It is not a solent stay, but rather a true removable inner forestay that is about one foot aft of the forestay.
Can anyone tell me how to determine when I have the correct tension on it?
One option is to have a rigger set the tension and note the numerical position on the tensioning ratchet (it is marked with numbers).
But if I knew what the correct tensioning was, then I could simply buy the measurement gizmo that one hooks on the stay and set it myself.
So what is the right tension?
