Hi MSW, I have a couple of questions regarding the false stays used to attach the staysails to on my Leopard of 1790. I would like to put the main and mizzen staysails on the model. Not sure if I will furl some (probably) but anyway. I have attached a picture of a piece of my standing rigging plan to help illustrate. As the plan shows, the main top mast staysail rides on the fixed and permanent top mast stay preventer. Being permanent standing rigging this would be a tarred rope. Since the hanks will be sliding up and down this rope should that working length be served?
