Re: Islander 28 Backstay Adjuster Preferences

It looks like the Islander 28 really likes a very strait rig. The recomendations I found were for 1-1.2 inches of prebend, though it does like additional backstay as the preassure builds. Personally I like cascading backstays on boats this size since for a couple of hundred bucks you can get a 32 or 64 to 1 setup that makes applying preassure pretty easy. I don't normally think of hydrolics until you need around 3,000lbs of backstay preassure or more.
