Re: Getting standing rigging replaced in Seatte- suggestions?
While not specifically asked by the OP, I did recently replace all my own standing rigging using Wire and Norseman fittings I bought from RiggingOnly.com (they were very responsive). It was VERY easy... all 8 wires completed in around 3 hours and I spent perhaps half of what I would have spent having it done. I'm also happier with the (reusable) Norseman terminals than I would have been with swages.
You may not be interested in a DIY solution, but if you've even thought about it, I can tell you that my first (and only) time doing it myself went fine.
