Just found my boat W32 has Norseman fittings, that I thought, erroneously, were Stalocks.
My dock mate, Bob, tells me they are an older model like he had on his boat (Allied 36 ketch). He said his old fittings looked like mine. He could not get new cones for his.
So, Bob bought Stalocks and has been very happy.
My research has guided me towards Stalocks.
Bob and I did take apart an old Norseman fitting at the bobstay 3/8" yesterday, sort of exploratory surgery. With a butane torch I was able to easily disassemble the part, except for ruining several inches of the wire rope. The cone looked good to me, but Bob cautioned that it really needed its grooves to hold the strands of wire, which were not very well defined after the surgery.
