Re: Replace standing rigging?

The problem is the stress on when you bend the SS to that degree, one of the main reasons they went with straight connectors, either swagged or mechanical.
We replaced all our shrouds with sta loc mechanical fittings, both uppers and lowers. We carry one length of extra line which gives us the flex of self repair in remote locations.
