We just had all of the standing rigging replaced at Svendsens in Alameda last week.  Partly because we are next door at Grand Marina and partly because they gave us a good deal at the boat show last month.  Chris their rigging foreman is a good guy and gave us a bunch of good advice (I think)  We cleaned the mast, rebeded the spreaders and changed the masthead light to a LED while it was down.  Would have been nice to replace the sheaves as well but we needed something to do next time we pulled the mast. :D  We had the usual boat yard issues that drive you crazy, but I guess that's expected being out of towners.  Chris made up for the other things that lacked in our opinion.  Nobody treats your baby like you do I guess.

Sea Spirit and All Hail both had their rigging done by Hansen Rigging in the last 12 month and as far as I can tell they are happy.
