Question Turnbuckle help!

Hi, I bought a C-Lark 14 a week ago and I need a missing turnbuckle. I can just replace it with one of the same, but I don't know a part #, brand name, or where to get it. I am from Seattle and I checked with both West Marine and Fisheries Supply and I didn't get any answers back... It's a turnbuckle for a mast shroud off a C-Lark 14 by Clark Boats of Seattle (No longer in business). The turnbuckle is adjustable with a measurement gauge on it and a sailboat logo with an "S" at the bottom where the pin goes though. possibly a manufacture logo? Anyway, if anyone has seen this one and knows who makes it or where to get one, please let me know. Attached is the photo of the one that's still complete on the one. I am missing the other that looks just like it.

If Clark Boats is still in business... call them and ask them who supplied it.. otherwise, you can probably get something similar from CSJohnson. I'd replace both port and starboard ones if you have to change to a different part.

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.

turnbuckle

If I am not mistaken, in looking at the logo at the bottom of the turnbuckle - it appears to have been made by a now defunct company called Custom Fittings Company out of Canada. They made boat parts for many manufacturers.

I recommend seeing if a class association exists to see if you can get a retrofit, or just get new turnbuckles fabricated.
