Sterling Emma C Berry

Hello, Let me begin by saying I searched the forums and didn't find the answer. Answer might be out there, I just couldn't find it....

I recently acquired an Emma C Berry that needs a rebuild/restoration. It needs a lot of work but it's not a basket case either. I can get the sails from Carr, which I'll do, but I was wondering if it's possible to get a fittings set somewhere. Or...if anyone knows what size blocks would be appropriate. The mast hoops need replacing and the dinghy and anchors are missing.

Pretty much everything from the deck up needs to be redone. I can scratch build most of it, but the fittings could be difficult.

I fashioned my mast hoops from small split-rings like used on a key chain. Inserted small jewelry type rings into the split and soldered in place. Tedious, but they work well and look fine.
