I am wondering if anyone has had any experience rigging a fair weather mariner 39 as a cutter. my question is this. a fwm 39 is rigged as a sloop,but the mast has a tang for a staysail forestay and a deck fitting that is part of the bow sampson post for the lower end of the syaysail forestay. Is this fitting at the sampson post supported adequately to handle the load of the staysail. I know the sampson post is located above the chain locker bulkhead,but i cannot see if it is attached to it in anyway to it? the sampson post fitting on the deck has a large flange base with 4 thru bolts. I would like to make this boat into a cutter rig.

It's me Fred. Depending upon my mood and inclinations at the time I may answer your questions or I may refer you to my consultation service.
But given that CA is kind of like a bar we hang out in and chat about boats I'd be happy to give you some basic info on the boat.

Fred, when you do show up in CA, if ever, make sure you bring

1: Pictures of tits
2: A sense of humour
3: Some good food ideas

And get ready for some serious thread drift.
