Re: stays and shrouds too loose?

Beyond getting a Loos gauge I would recommend getting this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Sail-Rig-Tuning-Ivar-Dedekam/dp/1898660670/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1369758591&sr=8-1&keywords=sail+and+rig+tuning
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.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
