Main Stay and Preventer Stay

I’m considering a couple of different configurations… In the end I’m going with the configuration that looks the coolest I guess

Preventer Stays – It is a large strong rope extending from the upper end of each mast and running down towards the deck of the vessel in a midships fore and aft direction. The shrouds serve a similar function but extend on each side of the mast and provide support in the athwartships direction.

Here, I’m making the Loop by Seizing a Loop…

Loop with Seizing
3rd go round… Still no good
