Paddleboards are great not only for exploring an anchorage after dropping the hook, but for getting a heck of a workout while you’re at it. The only problem is finding room to strap one down within the limited confines of the average sailboat.
I am retrofitting a removable staysail stay to a 1982 Bristol 40 sloop. The existing standing rig has both forward and aft lower shrouds. Do I need to add more support behind the mast to support the staysail stay when it is set up? I would like not to have to do this. If I do have to do it, what’s the most efficient, least expensive way to go about it?
