Re: Standing rigging longetivity
Depends on what kind of life it has had. Ten years is short for a boat which sat in a marina with zero salt or motion on its rig. For that kind of use, ten years is a riggers scam .It's a totally different matter for a boat crossing oceans, where it will get far more abuse and potential fatigue in one month.
