We have a bridge to clear leaving and entering where our boat is moored so we are fitted with a tabernackle. So going out and coming home I have to pull the back stay as well as the forestay (roller furling) and two of eight shrouds. The back stay is fitted with a quick release lever to remove the tension and a pin with a cotter ring to completely remove the stay so that it can be re-attached to the outhaul
on the boom. The forestay then becomes loose enough to remove the pin and cotter ring in place and the whole rig then can be lifted and pushed forward. My biggest worry is always dropping those pins especially the forestay one because I am literally bent over the forward end of the boat half upside down trying to either wiggle the thing in our out (sometimes a hammer and vice grips are involved), and the back stay can be equally as challenging. Fortunately to date, having done this about 50-100 times I have only ever dropped a cotter ring into the drink. I have, of course, ALMOST dropped those pins a dozen times. I should really buy some spares.
