At the SSCA Gam in Annapolis last year they suggested a separate antenna as suggested here or a backstay one but with only insulator (at the top). I am replacing my standing rig in a few weeks and think I will go with the latter solution. The boat has the traditional rig with two insulators but these bits are quite expensive and if you don't need one of them ...

The rigger I am dealing with (Mack Sails in Florida) said he has never heard of an insulator failure.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
