Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 2nd Forestay on Super Maramu

Hi Steve,

We actually have an inner forestay with a staysail on it, and the problem you would have, as we do, is that in trying to sheet it in, the leech fouls the forward lower stay.

We do actually fly it inside the stay but furled in so it doesn't foul the stay, in heavy weather going to windward.

I doubt very much you would be able to sheet a 90% genoa on the main forestay without furling it to clear that forward lower.
