Re: Seafarer 24 swing keel, keel pivot? Sailing qualities?

I hope my post was not one you deemed doubting.
I am cautiously experimenting with replacing a lot of steel products with synthetic, and I appreciate your comments. My point was that replacing a cable when the boat is out of the water is so much easier and cheaper than changing in the water that it "pays" to be conservative. With the haul out and trunk repair, it was several hundred $$ vs. $30.00 or so for the cable. I've outlived enough lifetime warranties to be skeptical of of pretty much everything. That is more in line with Mark Twain's comments on learning from experience, that a character judgement. Sorry if I expressed myself badly.
