If you're looking to upgrade/replace your rigging, my recommendation is to replace the upper terminals with swaged ones, and the lowers with mechanicals, my preference being Hayn HiMods, rather than the more expensive Norseman or Stalocks.
I would recommend you use open turn buckles, as they tend to do better with respect to corrosion issues. The turnbuckles should have toggles on them to prevent fatigue related failure.

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.
