I have a couple of problem with my boat and I'd like to get some advise.
The first is I recently noticed that the forestay is starting to fray. One of the strands has come lose at the bottom. I tried to take a picture of the lose strand but it didn't come out very well. Does one lose cable strand mean it's time to replace the cable? Can I just clip the lose strand and forget about it?
The second is the plate that attaches the shroud to the starboard side of the boat is starting to rust and has left a streak of rust on the side of the boat. In the picture I added a penny for reference. Is this anything to worry about?
