Ok so in a day of sailing you set up then pack up. You handle "ring dings" a toal of at least 8 times. Four for the set up, four for the pack up.
So we are all on the same page I use one clevis pin w/ "ring ding" on each stay port /stbd. and the one for each rudder pin. You guys are all probably much wiser and or older than I am and, I'm sure atleast one of you wise men here has figured out a way to do away with "ring dings" alltogether.
How and with what?
Regarding the stays I was thinking of a "fastpin" but am worried that it will inadverntly get knocked out while underway that would be bad. Or some thing would get cought up on it because of the over abundance of legenth. I can't find one short enough. So I'm thinking some sort of locking clevispin would be safer.....ideas/workarounds?
Thank you all inadvance as usual.
