Thistle Forestays

Thistle Forestays

Made with 1x19, 1/8” wire. The APS078 forestay has forks for 3/16” pins on each end. The APS079 Pigtail has an aircraft eye for a 3/16” pin to attach to a fork fitting and a marine eye for a 1/4” pin on the bottom. The through deck bushing with stainless liner (HA4039; great due to its thick nylon molding around the stainless liner - reduces chances of the fitting breaking; 3/4” mounting hole, 1-3/16” fastener hole spacing) becomes captive when we swage the pigtail. The APS080 forestay is one peice and requires you to have a wide enough through deck bushing on the bow for the bottom eye to pass freely through.

You may ship your existing rigging to us for reproduction if you prefer.
