Re: Rotten Luck - Stays & Dinghy Question

not sure what you mean by the rigger repaired the broken shroud but when the rigging is at the point that it breaks it tells me that it is well beyond the end of it usable life and should be replaced. wire gets corroded where you can not see and it get worked hardened just from holding the mast up and being under tension and vibration. I would bet they are the originals and should have been replaced about 20 years ago.
