Kynntana (Freedom 38)
My forestay broke a few weeks ago though the jib stayed in place and I was able to keep sailing, which is the beauty of a free-standing rig. I jury rigged it for a while and took it down this weekend to get a new one built. Now I'm wondering if I should replace it with the same wire or go with Dyneema or other such rope. Dyneema has higher breaking strength, but I assume it won't last as long because of UV exposure so would need to be replaced/maintained more often. What is the consensus on this for rigging?
