Thanks for the reply. The post was about the mast more than the rigging. I've not owned a rod rigged boat, but have no doubt they are every bit as strong and good as wire rope. From what I've read so far, carrying a spare rod was not possible. Like I said, it was only what I read.

Any constructive thoughts about whether a tapered mast is any less durable? Or is it actually better?
