Re: should I replace my standing rigging myself

Another option would be to use Dynex-Dux (or the NE ropes equivalent using sk-75). I made my backstay out of the stuff and I know you can get emergency shroud kits of the same (via Coligo marine, I think). You'd just have to splice in some thimbles and you'd save on the cable and all swaged fittings (the fittings are actually the most expensive). Just an idea...

Edit- double ck the price-- the more I look at the cost of cable, wire might be cheaper (although the fittings will cost quite a bit more if you have to replace those.
