turnbuckles for adjusting tension easily


Recommended Posts

Most Paper Tiger sailors use turnbuckles on stays and they are excellent. The most common are Ronstan and SeaLoc. However, they don't use them to tension the stays once attached. They use them to tune the stay tensions. They would still use grunt to get them on if their rig is tight. However, PTs have the advantage of being able to lean on the lower stay to assist attaching the upper stay.
