    In an attempt to exclude a typical rear waterstay on the 2023 beachtri build, I got the idea of running a diagonal DM20 waterstay from the rear beam to the main beam striker band attached at the hull side. To counteract the rear going force, another stay could then be attached to the ama forestay chainplate. No large forces, just want to eliminate as much bend as possible.
    Will this work like a supoptimal waterstay for the rear beam?
