Like you I am on "the learning curve." But I bookmarked this link for info on standing rigging http://www.dixielandmarine.com/yachts/DLrigprob.html Also the website has some educational articles on surveying and boat problems. IMHO, since it costs under 3 boat bucks you can get a 37 footer re-rigged- standing rigging is towards the top of my refitting list.

Re: Sailboat Maintenance

Snore - excellent link to understanding what to look for. Another good link is Brian Toss's website - he is known as the "guru" of rigging - Brion Toss Yacht Riggers, Sailboat Rigging
and has a forum where you can ask questions and get answers. He also has videos available that explain how to examine rigging and lots of other good videos about various standing rigging and running rigging (lines).
