Steve, thats why we are here. Bud dosn't check all the threads. Thats why I noted the thread in GD in my first post. I thought Bud turned me onto this trick, but in my morphine induced haze I just don't remember who first told me about doing this. I think the 1/2 inch three strand will stretch and break long before the bobstay fitting will fail. But like I said, I just don't remember. I think it was a fix for searching around while anchored and it reduces scope by distance from the roller to the surface. We need Bud! He will know. Ken

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!
