Needing 1 lower aft stay for my C22. Anyone have one for sale or know of a place to get one? I've got a couple of broken wires in my starboard one.

I bought all of my standing rigging from Seco South, 2111 34th Way,
Largo, FL 33771 phone 727-536-1924
They had me send the old rigging after I had it adjusted with the mast up.
The rigging they supply is top notch stuff...better than original.

Was hoping to find a used one to save a little money. However, I may have to go that route.

Thanks, but I already checked. He got rid of them already.

I replaced mine with Dyneema. It's just as strong and wear is more visible.

How did you connect the dynema to the chainplate and to the backstay?

Honestly, right now it's just tied to it with bowlines. I know this reduces the strength of the line by aprox 40%, but it was kind of a temporary fix at the time. I noticed some serious fraying on the lower backstay in the crimping and needed it replaced that day so I could still participate in a race. You may have to get a little creative with attaching it.

I'm probably going to replace my rigging and lifelines over the winter and may have a better answer for you then. I'm definitely using dyneema for the lifelines. I may replace the whole backstay assembly with dyneema and leave the shrouds and forestay as cable to have the use of turnbuckles. I just thought I'd throw it out there as a quick and inexpensive fix to get you back on the water. It worked for me.

I know a lot of people that are replacing all of their standing rigging with dyneema. A friend of mine just replaced all of his on his Corsair 24 with dyneema. It's lighter, stronger than equivalent size cable, doesn't stretch much, self-lubricates, doesn't degrade in UV, has great abrasion resistance, and floats. Also, if it does fail it doesn't fling ripped metal back at you.

Here is a cool video comparing dyneema and cable:
