Rigging Project using Navtec Norseman Swageless fittings

 Adding a Navtec Norseman fitting.  Cone is in place.
 Inspecting lay of wires prior to final fitting.  NOTE:  Be sure to use lubricant on the threads when dry fitting.
 End view of wire.
 Bottom fitting is correctly tightened.  Top fitting was over tightened during dry fitting and the threads seized when trying to disassemble... use lubrication and DON"T over tighten the fitting.
 Another Navtec Norseman fitting installed on the forestay.
A huge thanks to John from s/v Time Piece hailing from Anacortes, Washington.  John spent a more than a few days on the project as a driving force.   Back at anchor with the new rigging installed.   Nice sunset in La Paz, Baja California Sur,Mexico.
