un stayed ?
I maybe considering having an unstayed mast ....
on a dingy or some tender mono !
where the staying base whould be needing spreaders a many !
and where a turning mast > would be aero dynamically > a good
but on a spreading all out proa ???
where you can be with out any spreaders > having your mast
stability garantied !
at the cost of your slick standing rigging ....
because there you should be tending to >
to having no tangs on the mast > to having no need for all those
turn buckles !
and because of your wide spread > you need only ... fine wire
being shurely a lot less drag > then any un stayed mast
just think of this .... on being in a storm > with out any sails
think of the weight up there !
to be causing all of those wipping motions ....
