I have just purchased an older JB boat, i cannot find a number anywhere on the hull. there are numbers on the boom from proctor mast, Here is my quandry, it doesn't have the stays for the shrouds (only thing missing on whole boat), and I have no idea what length they would be or if someone might have a part or two laying around. I have enough skills to manufacture them if i can get a sketch of what the ends look like and length. hoping someone can help! TIA, Glen

What do you mean by ‘stays for the shroud’? You have the shrouds?

the horizontal pieces that are attached to the mast and hold the side stays away from the mast ( wire from mast to anchor spot on boat).. does that clarify what i am looking for?

Do you mean spreaders? Just over half way up the mast? The length and angle are normally adjustable. This sort of thing https://www.pinbax.com/index.asp?Details=234&mc=Spars&sc=Spreaders&ssc=Standard%20Adjustable%20Spreaders

I probably have some somewhere in the garage. Does the mast have the ring they attach to?
