I recently ran into some trouble at sea when one of the idler pulleys ripped out of the backing plate. Looking up some info seems to indicate that the pedestal is made by Merriman/ Yachting Systems and that they are defunct and you cannot get parts anymore. Further, it looks like the pulleys are pressed or held on one end by some kind of grommet so I don't think I can just manufacture a new plate. Has anyone dealt with this already? How did you?
