Yes yet another question for you all.
I have a Catalina 30
with wooden spreaders. They appear to be in good shape from the bottom but you never know whats happening on top till you make the climb. They look like they could use some paint
so there might be some issues as yet unknown.
Question is what do you all think of just ordering a new set of aluminum replacements
? I know they don't come cheap
but with the cost at around $500 it seems like cheap insurance
. I'm thinking I can replace them without stepping the mast
. Can't I just secure the halyards on the side I'm replacing and after I'm done replacing one and setting the shroud
tension move the halyards to the other side and replace the other one?
Thank you all for your help with all my questions.
