Where Credit is Due: July 2012
I live on San Juan Island in Puget Sound, Wash. I am "bringing back" an old IOR two-tonner, an Islander-Peterson 40 named Sabra. I had changed the rope/wire halyards to the high-tech stuff, but had hoped to retain the older Sparcraft (now Tylaska) snap shackles. I needed to replace the spring mechanisms and contacted Tylaska (www.tylaska.com) about it. Not only did they agree to supply the parts free of charge and shipping, but also offered to electro-polish the Sparcraft units if I wished to send them in.
It is comforting to know that I can still service old, but very dependable gear, and Tylaska deserves a thumbs-up for customer care and service. They are a quality outfit.
