You guys rock!
It all is coming together, our boat does not have toe rail so that plate would explain adding a block to lead lines back.
The front genoa style track was probably for a baby stay as we have a very odd small cut jib, almost a storm jib
that came with the boat, in bad shape. The previous owner passed away and we are bring the boat back to life.
You guys think I should pull them, put new pad eyes? Our intention is to have a roller furled 140 so we can single
hand? I think adding even 12 feet of toe rail in the right place will be a smarter long term fix?
I want to add toe rail on each side to sheet easier as the genoa track is way back towards the stern. Plus the spreaders are shot and I bought aluminum
ones to cut down to fit the mast and I want to be able to attach a hailyard to something substantial.
Also the spreaders seem to have little if any rear rake? Never seen that on any of our sailboats? Slightly swept?
