Q1: How should the headstay length be measured under #7.4?
A1: One should measure from the center of the headstay pin on the mast, to the top of the furler drum (measurement A), then measure the height of the furler drum (measurement B), then from the underside of the furler drum to the intersection of the stem and sheer line (measurement C). The overall headstay length = A+B+C. [Revised 4/10/01] Click here for <a href='../diagram/forestay.gif'?phpMyAdmin=Cb6D4JcnRG74Gbi1F7xZq2qMhb7>diagram</a>.
