Interesting video from James Baldwin on his conversion of a Pearson Triton
from a fractional rig to a masthead rig.  Among the items that caught my
attention are

   - discussion of stainless steel rigging vs Dyneema (at end of video)
   - using swage stemball terminals in place of tangs and eyes
   - two ways to disassemble an older Sta-Lok fitting
   - converting from hank-on jib to roller furling
   - using bulldog clamps and pieces cut from the old rig to temporarily
   set up the mast and determine the final length for shrouds and stays

There will be a follow video that shows the mast raising and cutting the
wires to length.
