first, if your rigging is stainless steel, you would probably be better off not mixing metals. second, you really aren't supposed to re-use cotter pins.

Also, they look cool.

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.
