Re: Replace standing rigging?

That looks like an amateur rigging job, and if it was me I wouldn't trust it. One problem with nicropress fittings is that there is a lot of gaps to allow moisture and salt to penetrate the fitting. I would not trust any home made rigging like that on something as important as the mast. Bite the bullet and get your standing rigging replaced before your trip.
