    Dan, When the backstay chainplate on Pegasus started to crack and seperate. I removed it after using the main halyard to keep tension on forestay. I took it to a machine shop and had one made from solid stainless, I also had the machinist cut off the section where the halyard attached. I used this piece as a backing plat for the new chain plate. New longer bolts and I wasback sailing. Another reason for the new plate was, the old one had a 3/8 hole for the halyard clevis (it was bent) and the fitting on the backstay had a 1/2" hole. Now it is all 1/2".
