      They are usually swagged (crimped hydraulically) onto the fitting.. Any serious corrosion or fraying is a sign it is time to replace the standing rigging.  It is only a few hundred dollars to have all of it remade and shipped to you.  You can restring the mast yourself it all attaches with clevis pins.  You can get by with replacing the damaged one but it is a matter of time and you will have to do them all anyway.

      Nice to see. Thanks for the advice from everyone. I actually do have a question about either the fore or aftstay. It's starting to unwind at the top of the mast. I'll take a picture and post it, see if warrants replacing. Am sure it's original.

But, hey, it kept the value down. So you can get an awesome pure bred for almost free! (US 22, 25, 27 and 29)

Kinda like the Dodge Dart and Dodge Caravan are different models, neither was a predecessor to the other, no common lineage... ;-)
