shroud replacement? ??

Hi. I have a late 70s rk 20. The port side shroud to the top of the mast is frayed. How do I go about replacing this? I see spools of cable online but how do I connect the necessary threaded part to the end to meet the turnbuckle? I am lost

The rigging is very simple but you will need special tools, you'll be better off contacting a rigger to do the job.

Where are you located?

You could send the old shroud in to www.riggingandhardware.com and have them make a replacement.

You can do the repacement yourself with no special tools if you like. Use norseman or sta-lok mechanical fittings. It's quite simple. Just follow the directions..
Norseman swageless mechanical wire terminations are availible in eye, turnbuckle stud, fork, t-bar, shroud terminals and insulator configurations at Rigging Only | RiggingOnly.com

If one is bad, the others are probably questionable. Probably time to replace all the standing rigging.

ask around the local marinas to see who is a fair priced rigger. Cheaper isn't always better. If your sailing in the ocean you want 316L stainless 1x19 if your only sailing in fresh water you can use 304, 1x19 stainless wire.

Re: shroud replacement? ??

As it happens there is pretty good article on DIY standing rigging replacement at a familiar web site....

At least I think it is good

Excerpt:

This article assumes that you are not going to simply call the boat yard and tell them to replace your standing rigging but there are several options for the do-it-yourself Skipper. Which option you choose will depend on your budget, how involved in the process you wish to be or how much of the work you want to do yourself, what geographic area you sail in and what your long term sailing plans are. The easiest way would be to simply take your old wire to a rigging shop and have them make up new stays and shrouds with swaged end fittings. The lowest cost would be for you measure the old rigging and order new stays and shrouds with swaged end fittings from a chandlery (West Marine offers a rigging service that has proved satisfactory for many sailors). The highest cost and most work would be to buy the wire and cut and assemble the rigging your self using mechanical end fittings.
