This part of the rigging video shows jib luff tension. The sail is held at the top by a shackle. Luff tension is done as shown:

Ok I see, apparently I have the older forestay assembly. My boat is a 2001 will the replacement forestay work on my boat? Part # 37810001

I spoke to jock at hobie today he said there is a line ran at the top of the jib for tensioning? Has anyone upgraded the old 2001 forestay and if so could you please help me with this. I'm not seeing any info in the documents on hobies site.

Trying to make it out Saturday!

It is either up top or at the bottom, as shown in the video. Either end works, but having it at the bottom is accessible with the mast up. When up top... you can tip the boat to make adjustments. When the rig is down... pull the forestay tight (anchor one end and pull tight) to make adjustments with simulated load on the forestay. You do not want the tension to cause the forestay to go slack as when full load is on the fire... the jib could get damaged.
