Re: Loose shrouds

You will also find that the rig will loosen or stretch after some use. SO you may have the end result of this too. You can get a cheap "Loos" guage from Fisheries or WM. You will probably need the smallest of the three. I will swag $20-40. Then next better one is just over $100, but more accurate.

The folks at Ballard sails may have a general how to tune you rig. As many sail makers do. I have one from Ullman. There is a sticky on here with a general how to tune a rig too. Helpfull to have a rig centered and the rig tensioned correctly. If it is not, you may not point as high, nor get the max speed out of the boat too!
