Re: Backstay Adjuster - maramu


Libertad has no backstay adjuster.  My understanding of the Maramu rig is that all stays and shrouds are to be adjusted to "tight" -no slack on leeward side under windward load.  In addition, my understanding is that a backstay adjustment is for raking the top of the mainmast for improved speed and tack to weather.  This would seem to apply more to sloops than ketches and we all know that the gentlemen sailing Amels don't go to weather.
