I see on the European site that they attach the Shrouds and Trap wires to all one shackle,as opposed to here where we use two shackles. :?:

That's old-school - the way it was done before we had the three-hole tang (mid-70's was when that went away).

Notice that they never actually show you a picture of the tang?

Filing, not filling. Round the extrusion edges so they don't bind on the castings.

I think that's done at the US factory before they're shipped. Same with the drilling. All the US boats are test assembled and fitted, last time I heard (Matt M. can verify.)
