Product Description

85 Topping Lift/Forestay Termination - IOM

Use to attach IOM A Rig Jib Topping Lift to Forestay

This item solves the problem of how to attach a topping lift made of flat wire in such a way that it aligns properly with the forestay.

The simplest method of attaching both the forestay and topping lift to a single eye, as a hook does not allow the headsail and boom to rotate freely enough for best performance in light airs.

Use the topping lift/forestay attachment to connect a topping lift made of flat wire, (see WFLAT), to the forestay such that the headsail and boom are free to swing easily. The single line above the connection will rotate freely and flat rigging wire for the topping lift will align properly with the boom and airflow as it rotates. The connection is free to rotate on the knot in the line to align itself with the boom.

Use on any boat where a topping lift made of flat wire is used on a rig for light airs.

An alternative is to use the stainless steel ring, ref 46B, in a similar way. This will produce a stronger connection more suitable for lower rigs on all classes.
