WWP15 Forestay Attachment

I'm new to my '96 WWP15. It does not have a quick disconnect forestay attachment so getting it in place was a tough pull and hold. After multiple sessions struggling to get the mast in place a solution came to me as hightlighted in the photo. The lever made from workshop scrap steel remains in place on the forestay with the aft bolt placed only when attaching/detaching forestay.  Maybe I'm not the first to come up with this solution, but it sure makes getting off the trailer and on the water an easier process!

Modification page

That is very well done!  Thank you for sharing the design here.  Would you mind if I created a separate "Sailboat Modification" page for your design on this site?
