    My k-19 project is comming along nicely and now I have to start think about getting the standing/running rigging, sails, spars and deck hardware. The plans spec out mostly Ronstan dinghy blocks and hardware designed for 1/4" spectra line. Specs also call for a 26' foot long Dwyer DM3 mast section and a 9' DM-275 boom section. There is a Harken small boat travelor and small boat furler on the list too. My question is where will I find the best pricing on the lot or piece meal using either equiv lewmar/harken or equiv OEM's if need be. I did the pricing for the spars and hardware off of Dwyer's site and am a bit sticker shocked....
