    We are down in the Caribbean and we are getting a quote on replacing all the standing rigging on our 2002 passage 456. Had it inspected and it's ok but 16 years and it needs to be replaced. Wondering about cost here vs USA. Love to hear what someone paid recently in the states

    Ok, the rigging shop here estimated 5 thousand euros, 6 thousand US dollars. Three days, done with the rig up, using Dynaform on the outer stays and the interior stays.

    I your standing rigging has been inspected and is in good order, why do you need to replace it?? I have a 456 cc 2003 and is is in very good shape. Nothing need to be replaced if there is no corrosion.

    Well we've been sailing in the Caribbean for past 5 years and most insurance compline want standing rigging replaced every ten. I agree I inspect and polish the fittings every season but you can't see inside the swage fittings to know if corrosion is there.
