We picked up the new traveler components this weekend...and what a thing of beauty it is. I almost want to put it in a glass case on a pedestal with a rent-a-cop to guard it 24/7, and not fit it to the boat. Almost.
The Garhauer gear looks and feels really beefy, substantial, and well put together. Nice and hefty. And the price couldn't be better. A new traveler assembly, all new blocks for the mainsheet system, new bails, and two proper snatch-blocks have us in for less than $2k.
Since we've decided to proceed with other projects ahead of the traveler to get the boat live-aboard ready, we'll be doing a dry fit test in the next few weeks. I'll post accordingly.
