Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

Just to explore all your options you might want to check out PBO. My buddy has a 32' that is rigged with it... total weight = 17lbs

Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

"The small diameter wire used for shrouds and stays stretches excessively, according to some owners, making it difficult to maintain headstay tension. Going up one wire diameter, at least on forestay and backstay, is suggested by many owners." Practical Salior.

I have seen this first hand.

This is not a "bluewater" should I take my C-30 offshore thread. And my windows are glass, not plastic. I am asking why there is such a big cost difference between the CD kit and the Hy-Mod setup. And if the cost is worth it, in your opinion. I have used the CD kit before on other Catalina's and had the swag terminals bend or become distorted in one season of use. (C-22). Not to mention, I like the idea of being able to repair the fittings myself. I was just amazed at the price difference and felt the need to post about it.

I am assuming that the hy-mod fittings are of a much higher quality than the CD kit fittings...??? This boat IS used on the Coastal Ocean and does stay in saltwater year round, my slip is a few miles from the ocean and due to this, we sail in the ocean more often than not. Having said that, quality is very important to me. I don't want to replace the rigging every other year regardless of price. I would rather inspect it yearly and replace as needed.

My question then, is what really makes the difference in price so extreme between the CD kit and the Hy-Mod DIY? As I said, I am assuming quality? But having never used the Hy-Mod equipment I don't know first hand. Thoughts? Thanks for the responses.

Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

Direct to your question.....

No, it is not worth it. You don't need to repair the kit at all until you've replaced it three times over. I would get the kit.

Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

Alan, have you tried posing this question to the tech support folks at Hayn?

I spoke to them about some lifeline fittings at the Annapolis show and they mentioned the difference between their products and the quality of metal used in products made in China.

I don't know how much of an issue this really is (or where CD stuff is made). But then I haven't heard any stories of rigs coming down because of Chinese wire...

Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

Minnewaska: thanks, I am on the fence about this and was shocked to see how expensive the HMod stuff was.

Jim: I haven't heard of any outright failures either but figured I'd ask.

There always seems to be a fine line between buying quality parts and spending way to much for something that is overbuilt. I'm still on the fence but just wanted to hear some opinions on the cost vrs reliability regarding standing rigging.

Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

Think about another cool upgrade you will make to your boat with the money saved and this decision will become easy.

Re: Catalina 30 standing rigging

Always wondered what these look like


They rent them too. WireTeknik Roll Swagers - Hayn Cable Tools

Aren't they insured by loyds of London? I think it was Hayn.
