I will replace my Standing Rigging myself... HELP!
I am a man with no money. I got a quote to replace my rigging for $3100 and without doing the forestay! It's in a furler, I guess that makes it tough. So, I am going to do it myself, by golly. I'm smart, I am good with my hands, I am sexy, so why not? I have looked into Brion Toss's stuff, but it seems to be more of a "fun with knots" sort of thing. I need a comprehensive source for questions such as, "How the hell do I know how much (and how thick) wire rope to order?", or "Should I climb the mast or step the damn thing?", or "Swaging vs. Sta-Norseman?", or "Should I have my frigging head examined for living on a thirty year old boat that I can't sail because its falling apart from PO neglect?".
Has anyone done this?
Know any good books?
