Re: 35 year old standing rigging - but rigger says it's ok
The pics that the owner posted showed some surface corrosion. That is normal.
Not in my world! Go for a walk through the average marina and see how many boats have standing rigging covered in corrosion like that! I certainly don't see that, and if I did I would be concerned about the rest of the rigging, including the Nicro fittings! (And it is true, I dislike nicro fittings for that application, but maybe that is just me!)
