Rescuing an old boat,(Dianond Smiles) I need to replace the hydrolic shroud adjusters and morrison wires. I need 4 through deck sheaves for new shrouds and lowers. If any one has any old ones, I would like to buy.

Good move replacing the hydraulics- when I owned her I had nothing but trouble with them. She had fixed lowers that were tightened with two very finger removing levers.
Best wishes,

Why not one/two string it while you are at it?

Plan to 2 string it, but will still need deck sheaves as there are none on it at present. There is a single piston on each shroud which is fed fluid by a master piston, one for each side. Hence no deck sheaves on the original set up.

The boat needs a total re-rig.Square hoop,the best of the sails are Fireball,(main and spin)(anyone want firebox sails)the mast is Proctor D, and it need  redecking.

You beat us to it!!

The decks didn't look too bad in the photos, but yes, the rig was always going to be a problem!
