Re: Loose shrouds

Its a Kent Ranger 24 (Ray Richards designed, not the Gary Mull southern California Ranger). Displacement is 3000 pounds with 1300 pound ballast. Sail area / displacement ratio I think is 17.8.

Although I do realize that the rig is what supports the mast, I guess I was just wondering whether a newly installed rig which may not be tuned perfectly presents a risk of catastrophic failure.
