BTW, replacing the rigging isn't all that difficult, provided you have the right measurements for the rig. You can do almost all of it yourself. The materials you need are fairly simple, and so are most of the tools. I'd recommend getting Brian Toss's The Complete Rigging Apprentice.

The materials you need are 316 Stainless 1x19 rigging wire, Stay-Loc connectors, marine bronze or 316 stainless turnbuckles, toggles, clevis pins, and cotter pins. The exact dimensions of them are specific to your boat, and you'll need to get them.

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.
