Re: New deck stepped mast for Trintella 42 /USA

the cap shrouds or uppers should line up with the center of the mast more or less. on more modern rigs the caps are set way back and they use swept back spreader. the position of the chain plates and mast base on your boat will be almost inline and uses straight spreaders. the straightness or sweep of the spreaders does depend on the rake of the mast. you will have a back stay on that rig. seems like you might want to consult another rigger if does not understand how your boat was rigged.
