How often running rigging should be replaced?

In general, running rigging should be replaced whenever it shows visible signs of damage - core damage through the cover, broken strands close together, damage from UV exposure, or stiff.

What type of cordage do I need for my application?

Cordage is defined in terms of the fibers used in its construction and the construction type (double braid, parallel core, single braid, 3-strand). When choosing line for your boat, it's important to consider strength, stretch, handling, and abrasion resistance. For instance, stretch is good in dock lines and rodes, but stretch is not good in halyards.
