As has been advertised in this column, a 'How to rig a Grebe' guide is being developed for the LBT (https://tinyurl.com/ybvj6flc).  Gary Macdonald has pointed us to a nice video describing rigging a faering, a traditional Scandinavian fishing boat - see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SgZSs1ogQk    There is a stick and rope method for tensioning the stays which we haven't seen used outside latching farm gates.
