I think you just provided your own answer - if the rigging is fine then why replace it? Given its age, I would suggest regular inspections going forward (this is something you can easily do yourself), but I wouldn't replace if there isn't any specific reason for doing so (i.e., some of the parts are starting to show signs of wear or you are setting out for a long offshore trip).
