Standing Rigging

To some extent it depends on the design of the boat, the amount of useage, the sailing venue and the harshness of conditions. A heavily used masthead rig boat in a tropical high salt venue might need replacement as frequently as every 10 years.

A lightly used, fractional rig, boat in fresh water in a cold climate might last 25 years.
