Maybe I'm missing something here. Could be as I have only looked at the picture on a small iPhone screen but why change that fitting that looks to be an integral part if the pulpit? It doesn't look in bad shape from what I can see. In replacing the lifelines the rigger would simply make up a set that had the same screw attachment that would screw into that fitting.
By the way, I strongly agree with replacing the lifelines with uncovered wire. You might want to go to the next size UP, not because of strength issues but visually you are used to seeing a certain size and the uncovered will look so different since it is thinner without that plastic cover. A thicker wire will also feel better on the hand. That's what we did when we replaced our lifelines.
