I apologise in advance to all the old hands because you have no doubt discussed this to death but if you could just give me the benefit of your experience I would be very grateful....
I am intending installing galvanised wire rigging 1770 to all the latest uk bs codes. I intend putting 10mm everywhere except on the lower shrouds on the mizzen where it will be 8mm. I intend using a steel or aluminium nicopress swage. My mast is Aluminium and my rigging screws are SS so I will ensure that any galv touching a dissimilar metal will be isolated. I will soak the wire in boiled linseed oil, allow to dry then put protective another coating on the wire.????
what do you think?
the cost will be 1/10th of the price of SS? I got a quote of around £5000 for a rigger to do it in stainless with swages!!!!!
