Rig Inspections, Fails, Close Calls & Advice

In January we started posting regular photos and accompanying stories for rig fails and close calls that are important educational tools for boat owners, and are some of the things we look for in rig inspections. 

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram accounts for photos and advice how it was fixed and what you can do to prevent it.

The photo here is of a forestay toggle that fatigued and failed, dismasting the boat.  This is what we all want to avoid, which is why we recommend replacing the standing rigging every 10 years (this toggle failed at 15ys, which is way too close for comfort, (There were, however contributing factors as to why this failed)
