Mike, I recently bought a number of replacement bushings and things for my Aries, I got them from Helen Franklin, I think the daughter of the guy that invented the Aries... their website is:


They still have a lot of stuff in stock. Helen is a bit slow, so, if you're working with her through e-mail, you might have to break down and just call her... and since she's in England, it's a bit expensive.

There is another website that sells "new" Aries equipment...


I have no major complaints about mine, except that it adds a lot of hardware hanging off the back of the boat, and the fold up servo rudder is a bit hard to fold up and down. But, it sails well, handles the boat even in a pretty stiff blow.

I've heard other people rave about the Cape Horn, so, if I were starting from scratch, I'd definitely give that a look-over.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
