Re: Replacing standing rigging

In some cases it can be better to take the mast down, send the old stuff to where it will be worked on, then they can make new stuff.

The fact that is is windy should not matter from a measuring standpoint. As long as you are using a true steel tape measure. These do not stretch, along with they should not be as effected by the wind as a fiberglass/plastic style tape will be. Or do early int he AM, as most places the wind is less in the morning that later in the day.

Being as you are possibly dealing with PS, IIRC the only places that have rigging shops is Seattle and California. Cliff in Seattle is pretty sharp. You will need to have everything measured up from the get go correctly, or it will not get down and sent back to you correctly either.
