Staylocs and norsemans are expesive but they can be easily replaced at sea if u break a shroud and have extra wire onboard.

|seabrookedan||I just replaced all mine myself. I did them 1-2 at a time. Fore and backstay 1 @ a tm and uppers and mids 2@a time(frst one side than the other).i took them dwn to local rigging shop and installed myself on my 33ftr. You just need to make damn sure u secure it good. In my case i also redid my deck mounts. I ran line under the hull to other side of bt. I also used a wisker pole as a big spreader and hung a big shot of line and two anchors from it as a counter weight. Whatever u do, dnt tie to dock if ur in a slip. I have pics of whole process on my fb timeline. If interested look up daniel warren on fb. It was done in july i believe. A come along comes in real handy too. Remember you will hv to climb to the top to hook it up, so you want it as tight as ur normal rigging. Line stretches. Spectra is best. Line under hull shld be secured fore and aft as well so it doesnt slide either direction. Its super easy. Only the fear of heights was difficult for me!|

My first recommendation would be to remove the rigging, package it up and drive/ship it to SNer Knothead, have them remade properly and then reinstall them yourself.
My second would be to do the same with any other reputable local rigger. You don't need to pay a pro $100/hr to remove cotter pins and unscrew turnbuckles. Even removing the mast can be DIY except for the hoist/crane but that depends on your comfort level and the facilities at hand. If you do tackle this yourself be sure to remember any internal wiring connections (often hidden).
Another recommendation I've heard is to have the rigging fabricated with swaged upper terminals, and do the lower deck level terminals with norseman or stayloc style... I've never used them but didn't think special tools were required?

I am ready to replace the standing rigging on my Seafarer 29 and looking for recommendations from folks who have done this before. A few folks I know have suggested that I do it myself with Stay-Loc or Norseman systems, and while I'm not ruling it out I can't see a significant savings considering I'd have to purchase the tools. I look forward to hearing from you.
