    Here is a picture of the forestay joining at the masthead. The forestay appears to be bending over the halyard cover plate. Has anyone had this problem? If so, how was it solved?

    Not sure how to attach a picture to this post.

    Thanks,

    Marc,

    Try to attach file(s) now. Should be working.

    Hi, Marc- if that’s your photo above that Keymaster posted, I can’t quite make out any forestay.. At any rate, I believe your forestay toggle should be attached with the long pin the fixes the sheaves in place and it should run underneath the halyard guard. As many times as I’ve summited my own mast (I’m usually facing forward), I can’t really recall, but it shouldn’t come in contact with the guard when attached to the stem fitting down at the bow.

    Sorry for confusion – That’s not Ray’s photo. I posted a photo to make sure the attachment function was working, and used a photo of an O30 masthead just because it was germane.
