Size of block and pulley for main sheet

Can anyone tell me the size of the fiddle block and pulley they use for their main sheet system. I am trying to order online to save money and the sizes do not mean a lot to me. On a side note: This is the first time I have had to buy sailing hardware and I am experiencing sticker shock. $20 for a shackle at West Marine??? It seems like they are making this stuff out of gold.

You want something that will fit a line 3/8 to 1/2 inch

Get out our owners manual and it will list those parts. a PO may have changed out stuff that does not support the loads Hunter designed the boom/cabin top to support.
Good luck

Garhauer Marine will give you best bang for buck.... You can also call their customer service for qualified advice.
