Boatsie Posted June 5, 2019 Report Share Posted June 5, 2019 I just bought a Hobie 18.. Haven't used vessel yet love this idea I saw on YouTube.. The mast raises from pivot forward hence the forestay tensions the lift. On YouTube a brilliant guy placed a tube perpendicular to mast at mast pivot and fed the lift via the radius of tube thus torquing the lift from lay. I intend to build a righting pole which cups the mast pivot and slots a feed line on other end.. As mast nears vertical, the pole can drop out having done job yet during job pressure will hold system together. Much like a torque pole leading tension of Guy pole clew. (Still an idiot but an idiot with a surf boat. Lol) Boatsie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
