Getting standing rigging replaced in Seatte- suggestions?

The rule of thumb is to replace every 20 years or so if there are no visible signs of wear or strand breakage. With that said, many rigs ( including mine) are still going strong after more than 20 years.

An option is to send the old shrouds to riggingonly.com and have them make replacements. They are quite reasonable
