APS Ensign Original Backstay set up with turnbuckle adjustment only. We offer replacement Ensign backstay with open body turnbuckles and marine eye ends for attaching to the masthead. The wire is type 316 1 x 19 5/32 in.. When using a remotely adjustable purchase, use our racing backstay with no turnbuckle.
Please provide us the length of your existing backstay at its normal sailing setting (medium air) from bearing surface of the eye to the bearing surface of the toggle at the bottom of the turnbuckle.
