Jury Rigged

The backwash from steep rocky shores creates very choppy waves around this coast.
So much so the mast was whiplashed violently while i was luffed side on to the seas for a moment afetr the halyard sheeve pin broke.
Considering a Bi stayed rig now. A top connecting rod and four stays (two to each mast) would give allround staying to both masts.
Not for the small one though since accomodations are too small to include mast a bulkhead.
I have a few days here in Albany where the boatyard is to sort the shortening by 2 metres.Then probably sail back again. (looking out for some lower swell days).
