Dutch term or phrase:tuien
For keeping a mast in vertical position several lines are attached to the mast. these lines are called in Dutch: tuilijnen.
Explanation: Ik denk dat 'stay lines' een mogelijke oplossing is.
Check even onderstaande site, puntje drie. Daar vind je ongeveer de uitleg die je in je verklaring geeft, nl.:
"You do not need both stay lines on the side of the boat. The mast will be stable if you use just two and you will have less to worry about. Use the line that goes through the spreaders to the top of the mast."
