seabrookedan is on a distinguished road
I just replaced all mine myself. I did them 1-2 at a time. Fore and backstay 1 @ a tm and uppers and mids 2@a time(frst one side than the other).i took them dwn to local rigging shop and installed myself on my 33ftr. You just need to make damn sure u secure it good. In my case i also redid my deck mounts. I ran line under the hull to other side of bt. I also used a wisker pole as a big spreader and hung a big shot of line and two anchors from it as a counter weight. Whatever u do, dnt tie to dock if ur in a slip. I have pics of whole process on my fb timeline. If interested look up daniel warren on fb. It was done in july i believe. A come along comes in real handy too. Remember you will hv to climb to the top to hook it up, so you want it as tight as ur normal rigging. Line stretches. Spectra is best. Line under hull shld be secured fore and aft as well so it doesnt slide either direction. Its super easy. Only the fear of heights was difficult for me!
