Re: Replacing standing rigging

I did mine with Aeolus in the water because I had already pulled the mast a few years prior and replaced all the mast wiring. I did it just as it is described here, more or less, one piece at a time. Fortunately, I have mast steps!!!!! Can attest to Rigging Only providing good service. I will also put a plug in for Hayn Hi-Mod fittings, as they were recommended by Brion Toss and I found them easy to use. Elegant looking too.

Sheaves are good to get from Zephyrwerks in Port Townsend. Great to work with on custom sizes, and great quality. I'm getting some more from him for my boom sheaves.

I enjoyed this job immensely, and even though it was tedious, I know my rigging is solid now.
