Re: How can this happen? Shroud Tension
1. Swaged fittings
2. Bulkheads solidly tabbed and intact.
3. Compression posts and header solid. Compression posts footing (bilge) solid.
4. Cotter Pins NOT IN PLACE. We left them out on purpose to make final adjustments if necessary.
5. Tangs are the pivoting type. One on each side of mast and through-bolted with a single 3/8" bolt and lock nut. The shrouds are attached with a 1/4" clevis pin and ring ding.
