RE: Mainsail Slider slug placement




Ok, I found my stuff, though I had to order part of it from BoatUS and
part from WestMarine. WestMarine had the slugs with stainless seel loop
and boatus didn't, but boatus had the pigtail to adapt my shore power
cord to a 15 amp outlet. So, life is good, though pricey.  :-}

Thanx for the info
