topping_lift wire for the Catalina 30 tall rig, wire only.
This replacement wire is for the early boat that used a vinyl coated wire which attached at the masthead next to the backstay, and was adjusted at the aft end of the boom with a line that cleats on the boom.
We start with corrosion resistant stainless steel wire (vinyl coated) Then add the correct fittings at the ends and heat shrink the crimps.
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!
