I am replacing the frontstay on my "new" sailboat. It was attached like the sidestay in the picture. Is that the correct way? The odd shape suggest that maybe something else is called for.

I originally intending on using a 1/8" cable I have (the existing is 3/32") but the thimble won't fit. Would there be any harm to enlarging the hole a bit?

I would not do it that way. No easy way to remove the stay without cutting through the thimble and cable. Most people use a shackle to connect the eye to the tang on the mast.
