Re: Loose shrouds

Did you have CSR 'tune' the rig? Or just replace the rigging? The final tensioning/tuning is usually done under sail to ensure the rig is true under load.. Maybe get some help with that.

The tensioning tool is, ironically, called a "loos" gauge, there are tow sizes, guessing you'd want the smaller...
