For reference - I am working to locate a 36' to 38' rebuildable steel offshore boat and will be looking for appropriately sized hardware.
The attached photo is of my last boat which regretfully I sold many years ago. I am trying to find something similar that will be a long term project.... that I can afford. Thank you!
Check out Good Old Boat magazine or their website - they have a long list of consignment stores all over North America. In my experience, lots of these places have spars and rigging for sale.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
