ok so today we checking rig and wires, only to find we would notta made it to next destination with intact mizzen even after repairs..
twing twang pop would a rebroken mizzen. so we changing out ALL the standing rigging of mizzen. cores of cables are rustedy and bustedy this also causes me to stop and think perhaps it is a good idea to step mainmast to repair and maintain so all can be done despite the lacking skill level here…
and so… cleaning rig wires is a grande idea– hopefully my rig is worthy after the repairs, as i do wish to sail more…..
now to find replacement cables…..
and more chainplates forward, gonna be external….
glad friends were not given headaches from their mayhem.. and glad i am inspecting mine before restepping mast
