I can a problem with your rigging...and something you should correct when you replace it. The turnbuckles should have toggles at the outermost ends, where they attach to the boat. If you don't have toggles at the bottom of the shrouds and stays, the wire and turnbuckles can fatigue a lot more as they can't move in one axis.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
