Santana 21

I am a novice sailor with an Santana 21 trailer sailor. I did not see anything current threads referencing the boat until now. I am learning more with every weekend I spend on the water. I may be able to offer helpful advise to other noobs. I would also welcome advise. Currently I am trying to figure out how to set up the standing rigging with regards to shroud tension. I understand there is a hand held device that can measure the tension of the shrouds but the ideal settings are specific to the boat. Short of finding the factory recommendations of a 1971 Santana 21, is there some general guidelines that I could use to make sure I am not too tight or too loose on the shroud tensions?

Thanks in advance,
