Snatch Blocks for Para Anchor - size and source?

Hi I am looking for snatch blocks for a 9' para anchor for my 33' cutter (13,300 book displ / 16,000 loaded). The blocks will be used for the stem fitting and for a bridle in the style suggested by Lin and Larry Pardey. I think they rec 4' SS blocks. I am wondering if there is a suitable non marine source that anyone has used as we can't really justify an additional $400-500 for blocks. I can't imagine that is what Lin and Larry were suggesting either.

TIA

-M

The current best option is to use a 28mm Antal Low Friction Rings - strong and simple and only about $30.

If remember correctly L&L were given their snatch block.
