Re: Replace standing rigging?

You can just about walk across Northport Harbor on Catalina's and I do not ever recall seeing one of any age with that style standing rigging on the boats above 25' ?

As far as ordering a ready made set of standing rigging without using the old stuff to get the lenths right is most likely going to be a FAIL

I have no idea what happened to my Cal 29 between 1970 and 2011 when I replaced the standing rigging BUT

The boat came with all the original paper work and ONLY the backstay and the 3/16 uppers matched the original specs everything else was kind of a mess of mismatched stuff and wrong size Clevis pins and random plain steel that somehow never fell down

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
