Re: 35 year old standing rigging - but rigger says it's ok
I would accept the opinion of the professional rigger.
What is a "professional riggier"? Does he/she have a degree?, How many years of experience? How many boats have they worked without a rig failure?, How many boats have they worked and have had a rig failure? What kind of "certification" or licenses do they have?
Is there such thing as a "professional rigger"?
I know of some riggers that should be considered professional like Brian Toss and John Koon, but many that consider themselves "professionals", are probably not.
