That sounds like a clever way to slow down the competition on a major race: Sneak out the night before and replace some rigging bits with substandard ones!

I wonder where they got the "nail gun" cutter though. I thought there was one on the US market using shotgun shells (a wee bit more powerful!) but hadn't been able to find anything in an explosive cutter when I was looking last year.
