Anyone know the numbers for what the backstay tension should be for 9/32 wire? I suspect that my forestay tension is insufficient but they both may be loose and it's difficult with the roller furler to check the tension on the headstay. If the mast is aligned and I know the backstay tension is close then I'll probably be close to where it should be.

thanks,

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!
