Re: Getting standing rigging replaced in Seatte- suggestions?

And another question:
Just got a quote from Seattle Boat Works and it will cost almost as much as I paid for the boat so.... I had the rigging inspected and was told there was nothing dangerous and nothing that looked as if it would fail. But there was "candy caning" of the metal which apparently is a sign of some fatigue.

How often does one usually have the standing rigging replaced in a boat that is used about once a week, not for cruising extended periods, and rarely in winds greater than 20 knots?
