Cost of replacing stays...
My rigger tells me that some of my stays can't stay, so they have to go. He quoted replacement of 6 stays (4x mainmast lowers) and 2 whisker stays which are all 5/16 wire and will all have roller-swedged fittings on both ends. Project cost $1,000.
Having never replaced any rigging before, or gotten quotes before, is this within the realm of reason?
Also part of me wants to have norseman or equivilant fittings, at least on the bottom as many of my other stays have, but I can't actually figure why I really need the more expensive fittings. I already don't trust myself really to replace the stays myself, so why would I need the better fittings, besides the fact that they're, well better....
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
