Turnbuckle replacement
« on: January 16, 2020, 08:23:42 AM »

I've seen lots about replacement interval of standing rigging but not of turnbuckles.  Are they normally replaced with standing rigging or do they last longer?  If so, anyone know a replacement interval?

Mike : When I replaced all the standing rigging I also replaced the complete turnbuckle.
I kept all of the old rigging with its' turnbuckles just incase I ever found a broken strand I had a ready made spare to replace while a new one was being made.
