Forestay Tensioning Lever

Write a Review


Mast-raising and rigging goes much easier if you can attach the forestay quickly and easily. These quick-release, adjustable forestay levers from C.Sherman Johnson are the perfect solution for many trailerable sailboats up to around 26-feet. These are not the smaller, light-duty adjusters you've seen—these are rugged, with an ultimate strength of 2500 pounds. This piece is a factory specified upgrade for the West Wight Potter 19. Also popular as an essential piece of hardware on catamaran shrouds to allow the crew to right boat after capsize. 3 extender holes. Wire size to 1/8". Pin diameter ¼". Lever take-up is 2 1/4" and a quick release pin is included for positive locking.
