Yikes, this must be over my head. The stay in the pic sure looks like a forestay, and there wouldn't be anything breakaway involved. Perhaps see a local rigger about a replacement?

Good luck.

Could be an insulator - is there a similar fitting at the other end?

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.

That is one HD fitting, for a triatic stay - can't help you there.

Not to hijack this thread, but I have a question related to this topic. The main mast on my ketch rig is supported by five stays & shrouds; a double forestay, a pair of shrouds off a single spreader and double stays (or shrouds?) led aft from the masthead to port/starboard pilothouse roof.

The mizzen is supported by four shrouds; two forward and two to port/starboard aft deck from the aft-swept spreader. On the picture of my main masthead below, a rope is spliced to a fitting and then runs as a triatic stay would to a turning block on the mizzen masthead. From there, it runs down to a cleat at the mizzen mast base. I don't believe a triatic stay to be an accurate description of this line - since it doesn't seem to serve a support function.

The tension, and possibly the rake, of both masts however, can be adjusted by this line. Therefore, is this line part of the running or standing rig?

True Blue-

That line is part of the Standing rigging.. Running Rigging goes to sails...ie halyards, sheets, downhauls, cunninghams, outhauls, etc.

That was my understanding, but why rope? Therefore, is it called a triatic stay or an adjustable back stay for the mainmast? The mizzen mast has no back stay, but shrouds from the aft-swept spreaders - the only line running aft of the mizzen is the mizzen boom topping lift.

No idea what you would call the beastie...It sounds like an adjustable triatic stay, since if you cleat it it creates tension between the two masts, like triatic stay would do...but you can adjust the level of tension.
