You really need to measure your existing backstay to match. It's pretty critical and each of the boats are setup differently. Also recommend having it made a little shorter to account for the initial setting of the splices and initial creep by the new material. I have spec'd lengths but would not feel confortable making one without a measurement.
I agree completely. There are several different setups being used in regards to purchase and where the placement of the purchase is located. Most of the East coast guys use a 2 pennant cascade with a triple block from the last pennant, then going to 2 double blocks and forward. I know the west coast guys favor the purchase on the floor setup.
If you are looking for some work to be done, there are plenty of guys in chicago that could help. Aps is pretty high. I just did one, minus blocks for waaaay less than aps. Also, APS uses the stock setup, which is probably not what you would want.
PM me or email if you want to discuss further. And welcome to the fleet!
