Re: Replace standing rigging?

When the standing rigging on my S2 was 24 yrs old I thought it was OK until I decided to REALLY look close at it. I lightly sanded some brown spots that looked like faint rust and then examined them with a 10X magnifier. DANG, cracks on the lower fittings where the wire goes in. Of course, I replaced them. The cracks were not visible to the naked eye.
