Re: stays and shrouds too loose?

Beyond getting a Loos gauge I would recommend getting this book:
Sail and Rig Tuning: Ivar Dedekam: 9781898660675: Amazon.com: Books Sail and Rig Tuning: Ivar Dedekam: 9781898660675: Amazon.com: Books



It is both a very good book on sail trim and on tuning your shrouds for the best performance. It talks about both how and why, which I found useful.
