Standing Rig Tensioners

They do make a bigger one but it is pricey, around $160 or $170 I think. Call them directly.

Standing Rig Tensioners

I have used the largest rod rigging gauge and although it does not fit exactly, it at least allows for a reference.

Standing Rig Tensioners

I''m looking for a rig tensioner to adjust the standing rigging on a Wauquiez 43 with a 56 foot mast. The main stays are 12mm or about 1/2 inch and as such are too big for the readily available Loos tensioners. Does anyone have a lead on a big rig tensioner. I just want to equalize the tension and pulling on the wire is more than my calibrated elbow can manage.
