#79: How to DIY Inspect, Repair & Replace Rigging

Thank goodness we went with the hi-mods, as we were able to change these out ourselves and get our (newly-stepped) rig back up and going again on our own, without having to call in a rigger.  Just some fun tips for you all that we learned while trying to drop a new main halyard, stepping the mast to re-configure the mast cap and changing out the hi-mods.  Hope you all find some useful tidbits in here. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions!

BIG NEWS at the end of the video, too. Next week we’ll be announcing our 3rd GIFT OF CRUISING on the YouTube channel, and my Trans-At movie will also be available for rent on YouTube then as well, Oct. 7th.  Ain’t life grand?  If you can’t wait that long, go get an early ticket to view on Patreon.

  1. I noticed something very smart about the re-rig process: screw the body of the turn buckle to the lower part first, then screw the body into the upper/wire end part second. If the turnbuckle ever backs off, it will fall off the wire and onto the deck still attached to the lower part. That makes a world of difference between body on the ocean floor and turnbuckle body on the deck!

    Yes, I have experienced the desired result once.
