Boom rigging question

Well we got the job on this morning. Wanted to rig the boom and main too but found wabouled tour. . n the boom stay when we stepped the mast. Sad but nobody caught it. Anyway I notice several boats in my marina don't use a boom stay. They simply run a line from end of boom to a connector on the back stay. I am wondering if that is a temporary solution for me until Ican figure iout how the bosun seat works.? If advised, what is the connector called?

BTW we had first sail today too. Even with just a jib it was a fun downhill run for about an hour...
