Replacing shrouds with new wire and by reusing Norseman fittings

Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure #3: Replacing the Rigging, Part 2

In this week's episode, we finished assembling our first shroud.

These are the adventures of the 42 foot sailing vessel Paragon. Join us as we voyage over 6000 nautical miles from North Carolina to Iceland and explore many exciting ports along the way.

Thank you for sailing with us,

Drake and Monique
s/v 'Paragon' (Westsail 42)

I wish I could say that makes me think I could do it myself. But, what it makes me think is that it's worth paying a professional rigger to do it.

Hi Group9, I absolutely agree. I think rigging is one of those things that is the most important thing in the world to have full confidence in.

It's only after Mark and I disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt 24 Norseman fittings that I think I might be able to do it myself. Since we're sailing to places where there are no riggers (Greenland, Svalbard!) I felt that I needed to learn how to replace a shroud just in case. emergency preparedness = confidence...
