Take the total length of the whole system, measured from heart to heart. We make the stays exactly to the millimetre of the supplied lengths. Is the new stay equipped with an rigging screw, we deliver it with the rigging screw half way in. That way there is enough space to tune the rig both ways.
To avoid confusion, how we measure is explained below:
Type of fittings:
How are the stays attached to the mast? Rigging may consist of several types of fittings such as T-Terminals (also called hook terminals), stemball, fork and eye terminals. Check for all available terminals and detailed information on terminals.
Important with T-terminals is that they fit exactly in the so-called "backing plates" of the mast. Therefore if possible pick the same brand as the old ones.
Rigging screws are divided into two main categories: aluminum-bronze chrome open house rigging screws and stainless steel rigging screws with a closed body. For a overview check rigging screws.
The aluminium bronze chrome open house rigging screws have finer UNF thread and the stainless steel stud will run smoother in the aluminium bronze body. These rigging screws typically have a toggle at the bottom so that, under dynamic loading the system is self-aligning. These characteristics will significantly increases the lifespan.
The stainless steel rigging screws with metric threads and without an aligning toggle, are a more economic option. However the stainless steel stud with metric thread in a stainless steel tensioner body is considerably more susceptible to seizing up. In the most extreme case, threaded stud and rigging screw body are (cold)welding together and loosening is no longer possible.
For smaller yachts there is the compromise option of a stainless steel rigging screw with toggle and UNF thread. The self-aligning toggle prefends kinks and the finer UNF thread is less susceptible to seizing up.
It is important to carefully check the thread in your current rigging screws. Is the thread still good? It is often possible to re-use the rigging screws again and save significantly in the total price for new rigging.
