I like to use the proper terminoloogy when asking a question about rigging
. I don't know what to call it, so I guess I have 2 questions. What is the name for the attachment point on top of the wheel
house where the line form the boom is secured? Is it a cleat, eye bolt or some other cool nauticle term?
The other question I have is about this force this attachment has to withstand. Its a vague question I know, but in general terms, is this a highly stressed point? It on a 50 foot ketch
. The boats I have been on have a triple block and tackle there so I would think it may have a large load on it at times.
Thanks in advance
