Mast top plate extension

Sharon and Dick Drechsler, Last Resort, #140

I think most of us use the second Genoa halyard for the spinnaker. Because we use a Rollgen we had to put a stainless steel extension plate with a bail and block at the top of the mast to hold the head of the spinnaker about 6 inches forward of the mast so the headboard on the sail could swivel unencumbered by the jib halyard.
