New Standing Rigging

With all due respect to everyone happy with their orders, and I ain''t going to argue about it, I wouldn''t buy rigging from Sailnet again. It took nearly two years to get it right. I was also supposed to get the "free" furler line units for the stanchions when I ordered a Schaefer furler. Never saw them. Gave up on trying to get through to somebody. Even had a store credit that seemed to "evaporate." "Oh, no good after a year." ''Scuse me. My money doesn''t automatically default to you. Send me a check. Boyle finally credited me $100, which was less than I was owed. The rigging: First it was 4" too long. I even SENT them the original rigging with explicit instructions. Then it was 4" too short. They wanted me to add link plates all the way around. I opted for extra toggles. Hence, I''ve got extra toggles in places. Find a local rigger, read up on it, find a cable source, use Sta-lok, have the right cutting tools and do it. I now do all my own rigging.
