Janus Ghost 13 Sailboat

Alright, so I bought a 1974 Ghost 13 sailboat a few weeks ago and sailed it several times and it is all great, seems like an awesome little sailboat to learn on. Problem is, last time I used it somehow the turnbuckle for the front cable of the standing rigging got loosened and fell off on the road while driving. After hours of searching for it, on the road and a new one (online and locally in NE OH), I can't find what I need. Does anyone know of any places for finding parts for small sailboats like this? It has a 3/32" cable, 1/4" pin, and what measures to be a 7/32" thread 28 thread per inch turnbuckle. West Marine doesn't have any, and I'm thinking I may have to buy something new and attach (swedge?) it to the cable. Is that hard? I just was having trouble even finding threads to match up to it at any local hardware stores to rig anything up, and I know its pretty critical to be strong enough since it's keeping the mast up.

Thanks for any help and suggestions.

Mike

Re: Janus Ghost 13 Sailboat

Just figured I would post my findings in case anyone else searches for the same thing. The piece measured almost exactly 7/32 with 28 threads per inch. It turned out to be a 12-28 thread after hours of trying to match it up, then find one online. The only place that makes them is Racelite of Ohio.

So, some years down the road, how are you liking your Ghost 13? I am restoring one and am wondering where I can find info on the rigging.

Hey there!!!!! Just got a 73 ghost 13 splashed it and found out I have the incorrect dagger board I’m so upset. Would you ever think of sending me detailed photos of yours? I know I would never be able to find one

See attached. Sorry I switched between metric and US standard units, but that's what I had on hand. Hopefully all the photos make it through.
