Hi,

As I was preparing Norse King for his trip down to Portugal I thought I ought to put the Jack Stays back.  I found what I think originally came with the boat back in 2008, has anyone got something similar and how do they attach theirs?

It doesn't reach from stern to bow and appears the double stainless steel hoops can be adjustable but from where to where?

Hi, we have a similar arrangement and run these between the bow and stern mooring cleats. The double rings allow you to tension the stay. But I think if you are venturing out into the Atlantic you might want a more substantial fixing method.
Good luck

Hi Paul,

Unfortunately they aren't long enough, I even tried them around the mast and it nearly reached the middle stantion at the rear!

I'll donate them to another when the opportunity arises.

I'll get some lines made up with hoops sown in so I can got from front to rear cleats but can remove them when not venturing out too far.

Hi Jon
On closer inspection of your photo they don't actually look substantial enough for jack stays, maybe they are tie downs for something else? Bimini supports?
All the best
Paul

It probably is but if so it doesn't fit a 470, it reaches almost from stern to shrouds!

If it's part of the kit I show on my post, it's not a jackline. It's an hatch escape kit.

Hi,

If I remember correctly you had a picture of it hanging down from the front hatch so that you could reach the strap with your foot to climb out.

These do not have any hooks only the one ring and they reach from the push-pit to the mast!
