Convert from quick release to more secure standing rigging

May 25, 2020
Catalina Capri 22 Home Port
I just purchased a 2008 Capri 22 with standard rig from a guy who kept it behind a low bridge. It has a quick release headstay and upper shrouds, gin pole, etc. I do not ever plan to lower the mast in its new location, and the rig just feels flimsy.

What do you think is the most economical (and/or best) way to do away with the quick release stuff and make the standing rigging more secure?
