Thumbs up rigging

Hi all, going to 'Zahniser's' tomorrow to get my mast looked at, I hope it's NOT a big job, I want to go sailing as soon as they finish. Good idea ? Thanks.

Re: rigging

Depends on what they find. Why are you having your mast looked at?

An inspection is not a particularly big job. Usually about an hour per mast. But, like Johnny said, it's all about what they find in the course of the inspection. That could turn into a big job.

To answer this post would require a degree of psychic powers of which I am not capable, especially on a Monday morning.

Re: rigging

LOL, no the mast is 'bowed' a little and I'm going to have them take the bow out is all. I still can't believe I never noticed this before now. I do hope everything else checks out OK.

Re: rigging

Bowed which way? Also, what kind of boat, and rigging (masthead, fractional)?

rigging

Distantly related question - how many years is your standing rigging good for? I'm thinking I may have to consider replacing my 1993 rigging because it is getting old like me.

The industry standard is 8 years without inspection, then dye testing or x-ray inspection every year.

Of course a lot of people will get more than this, others less.

I can tell you that my 1971 Alberg 30 had all original rigging except for back stay when I replaced it last year. I have no idea about quality of stainless today but I would venture to say the original stuff that I cut off was better than the stuff I on.
