Re: Replace standing rigging?

Thanks for all the feedback and ideas.

Yes, it did have tape on it . . . but I unwrapped it so I could show you on the picture what I was talking about.

After I took this picture, I was inspecting the mast head the other day with a pair of binoculars and I "think" i can see some fraying on the backstay (at the masthead) too. I need to go up there this weekend (ugggh) and take a closer look. Given the unknown history & age of these parts, I'm leaning towards replacing them all.

Given the common nature of these boats, the measurements are well known and "standard". I found some pretty good prices from Catalina Direct on replacement rigging. I plan to order a full set putting on this fall so I can be sure they all fit and are good.
