Where to buy hardware.
- There's a catalog outfit in North Carolina (US) called: LAYLINE
Yacht Racing Equiptment. They have all the stuff..... virtually any
size, color and blend of Spectra line - not pure kiteline however.
They have all the Ronstan and Wichard snap shackles. One's
mentioned in these forums: Ron - RF6110 is $25.60 WIC-
RF2473 is $27. in the 2002 catalog I got last month.
They have the Harken 16mm AirBlock pulleys H404 is $7.50
....colored, plastic balls for line ends in four sizes.....and 80
pages of other small boat bits.
Shipping within US is $6.35 for 25-50$ orders Pretty reasonable
for mailorder. I don't have a clue about offshore shipping.
intl. fax: 919 755 1539
US: 800 550 5463
.....probably similar small boat chandlers in OZ and EU
chatter: this is exactly how LAND's END the big mailorder outfit
in the US that sells 'Whitebread' clothing started. They had a
chandlery on a canal in Chicago and rigged racing boats.
