Re: [Amel] Danny-Staysail
Hi Eric,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
I just posted 2 pics in a new folder called Elyse.
Elyse has a furler on an inner forestay that was installed at the factory.
The deck fitting is through bolted to a massive 12mm thick stainless plate that runs under the foredeck and under the bow fitting...all bolted together.
The furler you can see is a manual and the mast attachment is just above the second spreader...there are running backstays (dyneema) attached to tangs at the same level coming down to a block and then polyester 2:1 lead off to the secondary winches in the cockpit. They're stowed with a block and tackle to the chain plates when not used.
The sail itself is a reasonably heavy jib with no overlap. It can be sheeted inside the shrouds with a snatch block attached to the chain plates and the sheet then run through the genoa blocks on the traveller.
It works well and is infinitely more secure and strong than the "tied to the cleat" forestay versions I've seen.
