I can't believe this topic hasn't already been covered but if it has I can't find the thread.........
I'm doing some rig re-design and planning on installing runners. Sloop
rig with a babystay quite low down (about 1/3 of the way up the mast). There's also an attachment for an inner-forestay about 3/4 of the way up the mast
which I intend to use sometimes (for a storm-jib stay and spinnaker
pole topping lift).
I'm thinking i'll stick two sets of pad-eyes on the mast
, one set level with the babystay and the other with the inner forestay and run some low-stretch line from each of the pad eyes to a single
line that then goes down to deck
Question: can I offset the runners from their corresponding forward-leading stays? It would be nice to put the lower set a little higher than the babystay and the upper set a little lower than the inner forestay.
Any suggestions? Anything I'm missing?
