Thats exactly what I plan on doing because I am rather handy and have done all the work on my boat and know that this will be great to learn a little in case of emergency.

Second what Bubblehead would be a great experience to have the rigger working with you and if it lowers the cost of the installation...that's a bonus.

Do ask to get a new quote with swaged top fittings and mechanical bottom fittings.

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.
