FWIW - In a discussion with Brion Toss he corrected me when I asked a question about the "triatic" stay on our ketch. He said it was a check stay as a triatic technically goes from the top of the main mast to the base of the mizzen top mast (assuming you have one which we don't) So the closest to a "true" triatic stay would be those ketches or yawls that have the stay between the masts terminating below the top of the mizzen. We and our rigger still call ours a triatic though. Greater specificity in this case does not bring greater clarity.
