rubber boots w/ a wrap of tape, just enough to keep them on.

Are these the wheels?

I note they are installed with the boot too; supplement or alternative?

Brian: Looking forward to first time up. Until then, Im accumulating parts (e.g. spreader boots, anchor light bulb and, most of all, new halyards) & knowledge I might need. Deciding on what harness to get (plan to use it for climbing trees, too). In the meantime, I will be removing the roller furling so I can use the hank on jib until spreader boots installed and genoa repaired.

AdamLien: Good idea. I vaguely recall learning something about leather work in boy scouts; I used to know most of the knots 50 years ago too! The rubber boots are ~$22/pair, so...

zz4gta: Other than the leather, I haven't see instructions yet, I just assumed they snapped on. Is tape better than a zip tie?
