Hi all. I am rerigging my staysail cutter
rigged 43ft cruiser. I am constructing a combination whisker pole bowsprit
extension to be used for genoa
pole down wind
and a drifter respectively. I have some heavy walled G10 electrical
pipe for watertight applications and some old heavy bronze pole ends. The pole ends are not big enough to clip a sheet and mine are tied on to the genoa
so I was wondering why can't I just slide a ring over the sheet and run it up to the clew of the genoa. This would allow me to clip the pole and add a downhaul. Any other suggestions are appreciated.
