Like DH our standing rigging
is now 10 years old and was suppplied by the same the same yard. Our complete replacement bill will be slightly less but still £1200 ($1800) or so, plus lift
and store if we have to come out of the water
so another £400 ($600)
Our forestay is slack and there isn't much room to take this up on the backstay so considering replaceing these this year and leaving the rest for a while.
However how do you change a forestay without taking the mast down or risk it falling down? Rig is twin spreader with a baby stay.
