Re: Standing rigging replacement question

Eye the fittings carefully. Some will use chalk (the stuff that's used to snap chalk lines) to see if there are cracks in the swages. Lower swages are more likely to fail than upper fittings. In the other hand, upper fittings are inspected far less regularly.
