Adam, For the tall rig W43 or W42, it would be better to have permanent intermediates with the additional chainplate. It might limit the boom movement slightly, but would keep the mast in column better, and permit a tighter staysail stay for better performance. Use vinyl covered wire on the intermediates to minimize chafe on the mainsail when letting the boom way out. You can still use the running backs for any very extreme conditions.
I enjoyed reading your posts regarding yacht brokers, and agree with your observations and advice.

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!
