I think most of us just buy generic model sailing boat parts, and fabricate some other parts ourselves.

Suppliers include sailsetc.com, Housemartin Sails, and others.
I am sure others can chip in with contact details for Housemartin, and suggest other suppliers.

Was there anything specific, or is this just a general inquiry for the future?

All the bits and bobs on my Victoria are sourced from fishing tackle suppliers.

Ned Please sort the Goblin out  or PM me th pics if you would be so Kind everybody says  From a fishing tackle shop but  pictures are needed for us newbies as goin in and asking have you got something that will do this  not always   a good thing .I watched one Vic on sunday   only two stays on the mast and    little  thingies   normally used for aircraft  as Bottle screws .Best of all he got rid of that abomination of all that string and a ring all over the deck .Just direct to each sail .Oh and he won   easily

To hold the jib boom to the foredeck I used a fishing swivel
and snap hook .
