Main Traveller stop

A few weeks ago whilst slogging back into Rosslyn Bay almost head on into a 35 knott Nor Westerly one of my main sheet traveller stops decided to fly off and join Davey Jones. I can not source one in Australia. It is not your run of the mill Harken or Ronston fitting. Can any one assist in location a replacement or two?

Would it be old enough to be an IYE fitting, as fitted to many UK "Westerly" yachts??

Might be worth subscribing to, and posting on the Reader to Reader forum of YBW.com

You may be surprised at the wealth of information on that site.

Also, have a look at page 2 on this Westerly Spares site.

Hope you are successful in finding your end fitting.
