I have a S2 6.9 sloop
. In the attached picture, looking from aft STBD, you see three lines to the top aft of the mast
. The lower is the main halyard
, tied off to the boom at the moment.
The black wire is the backstay.
The white line that runs from what appears to be a fiberglass
piece at the top of the mast
. The line then runs under the backstay and is tied off to the port aft quarter. I am trying to figure out the purpose of this line and the piece at the top of the mast.
