Well, I screwed that up. Should have asked my son to help. Rob McCabe wanted photos of my solent stay attachment point. These are they. Sorry for the messy bow, we are prepping for a full paint job. The stay itself runs parallel to the jib stay, which places the mast attachment just a few inches below the cap shrouds at top of mast. I have a wire stay, with a Hyfield lever at the bottom end. A real Hyfield is no longer available. But a friend got a nice lower turnbuckle for his removable inner forestay, with handles to tighten it. He uses dyneema instead of wire, which I might do when I replace the stay. My rigger says it is stronger than stainless wire and swears the hanks will not chaff through.
