ajsemtb is on a distinguished road
I guess I should have known about the side stay chainplate. I was thinking of the front of the boat, not the sides. Now this is an honest question, I was at walmart and in the hardware section they have 1/8" steel cable rated at 340lbs with the clamp style fasteners. Advise not to buy sailing stuff from walmart, or would probably work on a budget for a while? I've decided I want to get on the water more, and work less, so I just want her up and going and i'll start restoring in the fall/winter. again, or home depot, or should I find a sailing shop that actually has the right steel cable?
