While examining my rigging
with my mast
down, I found 5 swage connectors with hairline cracks. All the SS 3/16" wire (1 x 19) wire looks great and at $4.00 per foot for "LOSE" wire (not including connectors and labor), I realize I have to rethink my situation. I either keep the old rigging
or I repair this rigging the cheapest way possible.
What is your opinion on just cutting off the old cracked swage fittings and replacing them with new ones. Then extend the wires with rigging toggles or some other sort of extenders.
any comments on this would be great.
