New Standing Rigging

Do it yourself, without question. I have re-rigged 3 of my boats, by myself, without problem. Use Norseman or whichever brand you prefer. I found a simple grinder with a metal cutting wheel to work best on cutting the wire cleanly. Do one wire at time, removing the old one to measure for the new one, and the mast stays up while you do it. When I did it, it was actually cheaper than having the local rigger or boat yard do it.
