Ben, I will send you an email with the info.

I do not have a picture of the shackle on the end of the bowsprit, but it would go through the hole on the fitting on the top end of the bowsprit. Normally the lower toggle of the headstay turnbuckle goes through that hole. If you have long link plates on the lower end of your furler, then you could still put on a shackle in place of the clevis pin. The shackle pin is the same diameter as the clevis pin, or 1/2", and the shackle faces forward. This gives an attachment point for the lower end block and tackle for the sail, and is clear in front of the headstay and furler.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
