This weekend we changed the standing rigging on Bella Luna. The old wires and fittings did not show any signs of damages after 9 seasons of sailing in the Baltic and North Sea.
But as we are leaving Sweden this spring, we thought it was easier to deal with this before we leave. The recommendations for changing rigging are in the interval 10-15 years. But off course sailed distance and climate is also important factors.
Check your rigging every year. The first sign is a broken strand close to the terminal.
