We built a custom stainless steel forestay link than installed a new headsail furler.
The reason for the link is that we upsized the forestay to 10mm 1x19 wire and had to go to a 5/8 pin. If we drilled out the existing 1/2 hole it would not have had enough edge material around the hole, which means it may have failed later in its life, so to do the right thing we made a link picking up the three existing holes. Yes, it is way stronger than it needed to be, but hay, at least it will never fail.

Looking back at old jobs.
Back in 1999 working for SparMaster i was involved in building a 40m mast.
I drove the f150 truck towing the trailer carrying the mast.
I picked up the mast from a place in Bulimba.
Transported the mast from Oxford street to Lytton, two police escorts, two pilot vehicles and a franner crane.
As a team at SparMaster we completed the mast and than transported the mast to the Port of Brisbane were we installed the mast into the yacht. It was an awesome project to be a part of.

Back in 2010 i install the mast into this yacht when it was purchased new and imported in Australia.
Just reinstall the mast after we removed it so we could perform a standing rigging replacement, all done and ready for the new owner.

Interesting day today. Was asked to perform a pre purchase Rig inspection on a yacht today. The yacht broker informed me that the owner had just had a inspection done to make sure all was ok to take the yacht in a offshore yacht race, the owner was told all was good to go.The purchaser requested us to still perform a inspection which we did. What we found was concerning. The owner didn't believe me and asked the other rigging company to confirm my report. They went to the boat about 2hrs after i and still told the owner all was good.
I showed the owner the photos and than he believed what i found. The black line is a crack in the mast extrusion, the reason for it being black is caused by alloy rubbing against itself.
Also you can see the black at the spreader base, the spreaders are moving on the mast grinding away the alloy.
