      Hi Charlie,
      Thanks for helping me make the decision.  I’ve contacted a rigging outfit in Seattle (140 miles from here).  Best bet would be for me to label everything, deliver it personally, then return with new standing rigging and replace while I still remember how it goes!  Now just have to convince the wife.

      Hi Chris,
      I replaced my back stay and the two upper shrouds for less than 300.00. There is a place in Miami, Florida called Sailing Services that ships all over the world. They did my cables. It's good that the mast is down and you're ables to see the breaks. I Would NOT sail it that way. You could loose the entire rig, including sails. What would that cost to replace? It would take less than two weeks to get the new cables. You have all summer to enjoy without having to worry if you replace them. Yesterday, I cleaned all if my other cables with water and stainless steel scrubs. Hopefully I will raise the mast today. I will post a photo of the rig I made to raise it. The winch cost me 16.00 on Craigslist and another 10 for the 2x4, eye bolts and u bolt.
      I recommend you replace the cables now. Otherwise you will be asking where to get a mast and new sails. That would cost more than the boat.
