zibadun, 900 is out of the question. And why would you feel obliged to do business with someone who didn't give you a good faith quote on work you offered him? Your request for quote shouldn't be considered "bothering him" since he should be in business to be bothered by customers and happy for it.

If you are not rerouting lines on deck and needing new hardware, running rigging should cost you not much more than the cost of the line. Splicing is easy with a little practice. I had never spliced double braid until last year. I picked up a couple of books and the splicing tools needed and practiced a bit, and now can put an eye splice in a line in just a few minutes. Also learned to back splice to terminate the ends of my running rigging. You should be able to re-use your halyard shackles if you are using the same size line you currently have. It's great to be self sufficient in every area you can be, and splicing running rigging is a skill you'll be happy to have.

All the best,
Will

also, it takes about 5 minutes to replace a halyard, assuming the new one has the shackle and you dont have to go up the mast.
I used twist tie wire that i removed the plastic coating from and "sewed" both ends together. Then i finished it w/ electrical tape.
Worked great. 'Cept I got lazy and didnt bother sewing the lazy jack line since the halyards went so easy. I jerked hard on the wrong end of the line by accident and it did indeed separate. I had a guy from the marina reach the block with the line, which was about 10' off the deck with a ladder.

cost me about $500 to do Main, jib ,spinnaker halyards, topping lift and spinnaker pole topping lift, all with 3/8 Sta-Set line on my Alberg 30. I of course did this myself and lit took all of a morning. This also was buying 3 new shackles. I could never afford to sail if I had to pay someone repair simple things. I think you should try and tackle it.....Should be no problem!

Sta-set is cheap. are you asking for a replacement shackle? New splice in the line? Is it parallel core? If it's a double braid then it should be something like
$60-$80 for the line.
70 for the splice
50ish for the install.

So at the high end, it'll be $200.

Where are you located? I do rigging on the side, and could do it for less than 1/2 with better materials.

zz, it's in Shady Side. Just called to cancel my order but it was all done 90ft 3/8 Samson XLE with a new shackle. (hmm not even 7/16). Got a bit of a lecture for ordering a small job and getting hit with a "trip to the boat" charge. Talk about a buyer's remorse .

Well, here is to "let this be my most stupid and expensive mistake ever"

For future reference, replacing an existing halyard is a piece of cake. Quick and cheap. It takes all of 10 minutes and $5.00 worth of supplies.
1. Go to Home Depot and buy some super 33+ electrical tape- regular tape works but this stuff is 7 mil vinyl and stretchy.
2. Cut the shackle off the old halyard.
3. Butt the old halyard head end and the new halyard tail end together, wrap a couple of turns of tape tightly around the joint.
4. Spiral wrap (with gaps) from a foot above the joint to a foot below the joint. Wrap tightly.
5. Spiral wrap as above in the opposite direction.
6. Test by pulling as hard as you can. The joint shouldn't come apart as the spiral wrap compresses when you load it.
7. Pull halyard through mast.
8. Cut the tape off and you are done.

Works every time- easy and very little skill.

My suggestion for your halyard would be 8MM Novabraid Syntec from R&W Rope Warehouse. $.74/foot. Lower stretch than Sta=Set X for less money. I have no affiliation with anyone in the cordage business.

To be official I checked with my rigger and he said he would figure an hour plus materials. Sta-setx is about $1.00 a foot retail, the high-tech stuff can be 3 bucks or more so unless there is more to the job than we know it should be closer to $200 than to $500 for the standard cordage based on these calculations.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
I used Sampson XLS Extra T and did the main and jib sheets, main, 2 jib and spin halyards, boom lift, ie 2nd main halyard for lack of better term. Probably spent 1200-1500 including new shackles and having Fisheries in Seattle do the eye splices at about $20 per. I have a 38' mast on my 30' boat! 50-100' jib, AS sheets, do not remember the main sheet or halyard off the top of my head, will swag halyards at about 70-80', inlcuding 10' for running back to cockpit along cabin top........I did the work myself other than the eye splices!
