I don't think it is an insulator, as it appears to be all metal... but the part connecting the 1x19 wire to the clevis pin looks like a Sta-Lok fitting.
Just out of curiousity, what is that wire like black piece that is coming off the mast? Did it attach to the wire stay? If so, then the big piece with the cone and clevis pin might be an insulator, and they may have been using the triatic stay as an SSB antenna. However, the black piece doesn't look like coax cable, doesn't look heavy enough to be coax.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
