btw, my boat survey passed the rigging, but I had assumed when I bought the boat that I would be replacing the standing rigging (30 years old). When I had the rigger come out to do the survery (had two riggers give me estimates, one give me a survey) he wouldn't go up the mast. That answered my question right there.

This is starting to get complex but see the wisdom. "turnbuckle bracket" ....my nontechnical term for the lower swagged wire to toggle "thingamajig". Kind of a 'you know what I mean' thing, sorry.

It's a boat term for the ridiculous price the boatyards charge to replace the turnbuckles.

Ahh I understand perfectly

katocomb - didn't mean to sound derisory - was honestly wondering if there were newer or different turnbuckles out there that I had not come across yet... thanks for the clarification and 'thingamajig' is a perfectly acceptable term
