I'd spend the money on new lines...since you don't know how damaged these lines are from being used for two years mostly unattended. Nylon weakens with UV exposure. It also weakens if strained too hard or overheated—both of which can happen in a bad storm. If the nylon is dry and worked under severe load, it can heat up enough heat-damage or even fuse the inner strands... which basically ruins it strength-wise.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
