Give your Catalina 25 a rest! Enjoy better performance while sailing yet let your boat relax while she's in her slip by taking the tension off the rig.
Equipped with an 8:1 purchase in a cascade configuration, the kit includes a new backstay
assembly, stainless fiddle blocks, Pelican line and cascade adjustment wire roll swaged for a clean attachment to the chainplate.
Simply install the new chainplate and replace the existing backstay with the hardware provided. This kit also includes an additional shackle to allow attaching the fiddle block with cam cleat to the backstay chainplate.
This is a custom made part. You provide the information we need to build this product for you. Once you order it we are going to build it just for you, just as you asked. We never want to see it again, and no one else wants it either. So be careful and order it correctly the first time because it can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into something different!
Your current backstay may include a short pendant (pronounced "pennant"), or "pigtail" used to support the boom end when the sail is down. We no longer offer the pigtail as an option as there are other choices which are safer and enhance boat performance, and most sailors prefer a topping lift or a Boomkicker which allow the main to be doused or raised without being head to the wind anyway.
The length of this item is based on the original factory specifications. However, the previous owner, like Captain Jack Sparrow, may have had an entirely different idea about how to rig a boat! Please confirm this is the correct length for your particular boat. We cut it from a long length and can't splice it back together again. Your order cannot be canceled, returned or exchanged, but, like Jack, you may have a different idea of what you can use it for!
