Two routes you can go... you can have them install the new rigging or you can send your rigging to a loft and have them make up new rigging for you and ship it back and install it yourself. Given the quote you've gotten, that's not a bad price if it is for installed.

One thing I highly recommend is that you have the rigging made with swaged fittings at the mast and mechanical fittings at the lower ends. This is less expensive than going with all mechanical fittings and gives you a bit more versatility if you're planning on going cruising. I prefer the Hayn HiMod mechanical fittings over the StaLok or Norseman brands, since they're usually less expensive, and IMHO a better design.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
