Headstay Connection

I have a Beneteau 35s5 (1991). During shipping from Chicago to NJ, a piece got lost that attaches the headstay to the deck.

What I am left with is the headstay wire and at the end is a male stud, 12mm coarse thread with a cotter pin locking assembly. Missing is an approximately six inch assembly that screws over that stud and is locked in place with the cotter pin at one end, and has a toggel or marine eye at the other end that the bolt goes through that connects to the hull in the anchor locker (it is below deck roller furling).

I cannot seem to get anyone to show me what that missing piece looks like or where to get it. Does anyone out there have a 35s5 they can look at and help me ID what is missing?

From your description, it sounds as though you are missing a turnbuckle. If the shrouds/backstay are the same wire size, then the missing turnbuckle is probably the same size/manufacturer turnbuckle as used there.

What type of roller furling do you have?
