Re: Where To Put My Asym ?

our's is a 1.5 wt and attaches behind the head-stay/roller-furler through a 3" Schaeffer Sheave. we have a 1/2 line that runs through sheave then to bow cleat. to aid in control there is a 3' length of s.s. 1/4 " wire rope with parell bead/balls of 2" diam. slid on wire until full the n end was swagged with thimble with a clip on thimble. this wrapped around fore stay furler clip back on it self. the 1/2 " line is used to control luff tension and foot height. it has worked quite well for 30yrs. last time 3 yrs age we used (Boat hasn't been in water do to medical issues) we flew sail for 15hrs going up to Maine in 25 knots with no problems. the only pain in the but is tacking, because the sail is attached behind headsail. note we also have a 1/4 by 24 " s.s. wire extension for the sail we in order to have the foot clear bow rail, so you don't get a pucker leading away from foot
