Tanks for the info. Matt Hutchins ended up having the part in stock in Clearwater.
Yeah, I needed just the barrel part of the turnbuckle--looking like the one shown above--for one of my "Foundling's
" side shrouds, and the good folks at Hutchins/Com-Pac
got one to me by the weekend: $30.50 delivered. They were also kind enough to toss in few complimentary "ring-dings", which came in handy today. With a bit of luck, her first mast raising in over a decade should be tomorrow...well on track for the long-planned first splash with yours truly at the helm next month.
By the way, welcome aboard!
I'm a bit of a noob too, and have found this forum extremely helpful. I'm sure you will too.
