Re: PSC 37 running backstays...

The running backs on NiftyNickers are as you said: vinly covered wire with a toggle at the bottom and then a 7/16 braided line thru two fiddle blocks with snap shackles at each end.The lines are long enough to reach the main sheet winches on either side.In twenty years of onshore and offshore sailing I've never had to crank them on the winches.

Good luck,
Dianne and Chuck Burke S/V NiftyNickers C37 #139
