Backstay Diameter

Does anyone know what the lower backstay diameter is on the Cat 30 ? The boat is a 100 miles away and I want to know if my backstay adjuster will work from my Hunter.

I just bought standing rigging from Catalina Direct. Backstay is 1/4" wire and split bridle pair is 3/16" wire (316 SS from ALPS, internationally sourced, they say Korean built and not Chinese)). I will note that the backstay eye they built, uses a 1/2" pin and the bridle pair eyes are 5/16"pins. Here's the funny part: the Backstay Tang upper hole is 3/8" and the lowers are 5/16". So, the backstay 1/2" eye requires a smaller 3/8" pin to hold it in the tang! Conversation with them is, yeah, that's OK....
