      Yes, the complete set is uppers and lowers, new pelican hooks, reusing most of the turnbuckles but otherwise new.  If you call Jeff at Rigging Only he'll figure it out with you.

      Blair,

      When you say "complete set" do you mean uppers, lowers, and all hardware? On my 34, I'm looking at nearly $400 in gate latches! The one price I got, SECO South, was something over a grand. I've not taken any more action after that...

My stantions have the ring on the top and I can see the bare wire cutting through the top ring and enlarging the lower holes. I understand there are nylon grommets for the lower lines, what have you guys done to address the upper line with the ring type stantion? Is there a nylon insert for that type as well? Thanks!
