Re: Shroud tension by feel

My stbd lowers were flapping on a port tack this weekend so I started searching as well. I just tightened them a couple of turns and will go out and check them. As was stated, under sail the leeward lowers should not flop around but relax a bit.

Thinking about it...I went one turn only. it doesn't take much
