5665Re: [campernicholson] Inner Forestay
- Jun 23, 2011
Our Camper 58 is cutter rigged ketch. The inner stay is from the upper spreader parallel to the forestay so it lands about 8 feet aft of the stem fitting. There are running backs to port and starboard winches at the cockpit. The inner stay is a roller furling ProFurl Clasic 42. The inner jib is then a 2/3 hoist that fills the space to the mast. Below deck is a SS rod & turnbuckle to the keel to buck up the deck fitting. The Genoa is unmanageable except to furl. I am considering adding a solent rig or code zero or both to the aft end of the stem fitting to be operated with a spare jib halyard. This will let us run a large drifter/reacher or a storm jib.
