What do you do to cotrol the top mast running backstays as the weather side should be tought and the lee side needs to be slack. The sail and vang would foul the backstay and not be able to extend to the correct sheeting angle. Are they just left off on radio controled models.

Evening Alan, Its a great pitty that we can't have the mate setting up the topmast backstays on each tack so what I have done on the Barges I have built is to fit two deck plates with eyes spaced around 1 1/2 "( working in 1:24 scale) aft of the aft chain plate and the same again for the second to take the mainmast running backstay on the first and the topmast backstays on the second. This gives sufficent support to the topmast and, whilst not strictly correct, dose not look out of place. It still gives enough movement to let the mainsail out on the run. Interested to know what barge you are building and your local sailing water.
