Actually, come to think of it...there might be a better solution if the problem is that the rigging is too stretched out to tighten further. Cut a bit off the bottom of the shrouds and stays, and then put a StaLok or HiMod swageless fitting on there... That would remove some of the length, and still allow you to adjust the rigging properly. Also, you could re-use the fittings for when you replace the rigging.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
