In the January issue of the Boat US Marine Insurance Magazine I have written an article on how to inspect your rigging. I did this because a lot of us sailboat owners are in areas where it is difficult to locate a rigger to do inspections for us. We as sailboat owners need to be able to keep an eye on our rigging. You can read the article online at: Seaworthy

Here are some photos of what to keep an eye out for. Look closely for the cracks in the stainless steel.
