Main Stay Size (Moved by admin)

Recommended Posts



The Victory's main stay is said to be 19" in circumference - approx. 6" dia. for those keeping score at home. I expect this was one of the larger main stays ever used, but am curious to know the size of the largest main stay, cable, hawser, etc. ever used on a sailing ship. You never know - this question might come up on Jeopardy.
