Re: Cost to replace standing rigging on a 44ft Cat

Hi Zero,

I paid about 4,500 for inner and outer shrouds and forestay. The babystay was ok as were the Diamonds. But on the ones replaced everything went - I don't believe in leaving some old stuff when you're already paying for all the labor to have the job done.

No need to drop the mast - the rigger just did one after the other...

Oliver

Metal fatigue and crevice corrosion. You may be looking at an old swage or a chainplate, and not seeing any visible problems on the surface, even under a microscope. But in reality it may have only 10% of the original breaking load and will pop the next time you are hit by a sudden puff.
