Somehow the plastic insert (not spreader boot) at the end of one of the spreaders on my 1983 E28+ has disappeared. They press in and are held in place with two screws. Does anyone know where I might find a replacement? Thanks.
The spreaders seem to be Kenyon SP2 and they have a few different types of tip inserts available. Can anyone with an E28+ tell me what their spreader tips look like - smooth, slot or hook for attaching shrouds, etc - please? I'm assuming all these boats are fractional rigs like mine. For the more expert rigger-types among you does the type of tip matter? Currently (without any spreader tips) my shrouds are free to move in any direction across the ends of the spreaders. Will things work properly if I use a tip with a slot or other configuration that contrains the movement of the shrouds across the tip a bit, especially while bending the mast? (I'd really like to know what type of tips came standard with the boat.) Thanks to all.
