I had the C4 (which is a c-3 with the 40M element) up for 10 years when I lived 
in Iowa.

I wrapped all the fiberglass with Scotch 88 electrical tape.  When I took it 
down after ten 
years, the fiberglass was still in quite good (not perfect condition).  The 
person that I sold the 
antenna did not rewrap the fiberglass and has had it up for 2 years now and he 
has not had 
any problems.

I had no problems with any of the rivits coming loose.  The antenna survived 
many bouts of 
high winds (after all, it was Iowa!).

I was very satisfied with the performance of the antenna.  I now have a 3 
element SteppIR 
and am very satisfied with it also.
