Need old sailing gear

Just curious, but does anyone know where I can find used sailing gear?

What I really need most is 2 tethers, 1 harness, and some jack lines or just webbing for a 25 foot boat. I will be helping to move a friend's boat from Wrightsville Beach, NC to Washington, NC in 7-8 days so I need it quick. This is not something I will be doing often and only a small part will be offshore, about one day will be in Pamlico Sound out of sight of land. Will probably only sail at night 1-2 times if even that, but would rather be safe than sorry.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Also, has anyone made their own tether? I used to be into rock climbing and this seems very possible. It is very hard justifying $80, $110, $160+ on a sewn web strap with two carabiners... I get that quick release costs alot, but the others are ridiculous. I saw one on ebay for $44, but I can't get it shipped quick enough.
