installing a backstay adjuster
I just bought a simple Johnson jaw to jaw turnbuckle to use as a backstay adjuster, as well as a Sta-Lok fitting to attach it to the backstay. To install it, I''m going to have to totally ease the backstay turnbuckle.
Is there any chance of dismasting? Should I ease up on the forestay tension? Could anything else go wrong?
