    Hello, just looking at the standing rigging in the rigging schedule, it does not seem right. How can a 44 ft mast have a 46' back stay and a just under 44' headstay? Am I not looking at this right?  Can someone help with my confusion?   Thanks Nick

    The standard W32 mast is 43' long.  The usual headstay is about 44', plus the turnbuckle.  The usual backstay is about 45', plus the turnbuckle.  The stay lengths can vary slightly depending on the brand of turnbuckle used.

    Ok thanks bud then my info is correct, it just seemed that the stays would have to be longer to me.
