I'm looking for a longer double jaw shackle, 3/8" wire and 3/8" pin. I am replacing the bow sprit on the boat and the new tang is just a wee bit too far out. I can get the furler
on, and I have about 3 threads left, but I would like to have a bit more thread.
The bob stay has a double jaw shackle that is maybe 3/4" longer than the one on the furler
, so I know they exist. But I can't find one.
From my research
the shortest ones are Hayn or Lewmar
at 2-1/4" and the longest are Alex Roberts at 2-3/4".
At best that will only get me a half inch.
Any other ideas for lengthening the turnbuckle about 1 to 2 inches would be welcome.
