Forestay Release Lever

Gerald Astrella and Cathy Calisch

I have an opportunity to pick up a 5/16 lever but own a 9/32 forestay (WS32). Can the larger lever be easily made to work with the smaller wire? I plan to use the Noresman installation.

Bud Taplin

Check the thread size of the turnbuckle body on the lever. You should be able to find a Norseman or Staloc fitting for 9/32" wire that has the thread size to fit the release lever.

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!
