Thanks for the reply.

That's how she's set up now, inline with the uppers and with a bit of rake.

I just got to wondering about failure of the triadic or loss of the main, and what might be done in such a disaster. Too much time on my hands with her out of the water for the winter.

Since we don't venture out in conditions where we'd be likely to lose the main, I don't really worry about that. Our triadic is a line led from the main through a block at the mizzen head and down to a cleat, so periodic inspection and replacement is what I do now. It can also be undone and cast off without too much difficulty, so maybe I'll go find something else to be paranoid about.

Again, thanks for the reply.
