Have rigged two boats with Norseman/StaLok terminals. Have kept in contact with one of the boats and it's still going strong with the terminals i installed 40 years ago. PO's have changed the wire and the turnbuckles but the terminals soldier on. Suspect the rigger doesn't want to justify the high price
he's going to charge for mechanical terminals over swages.
FWIW, it's very easy to do your own rigging with Norseman/StaLok/etc terminals. Did the 24 terminals on my first attemp on the above boat in a long day. Only reason it took so long is I was nervous and overly careful on the first few wires. Once I got rolling could knock out fitting a terminal in minutes. Mechanical terminals cost more but they almost never suffer from cracking, etc that affect swages especially in warm salty environments. Oh did we say we are going cruising to warm climes.
