Mistery Solved - Never attached
Got up the mast this week end (3 times actually) to survey the problem.
The shroud was not in correct position in the retainer on end of the spreader. Only the plastic cap was holding the shroud AT the end of the spreader. I wonder what other surprises the PO has left for me.
The retainer was not like anything pictured on the RigRite internet site. There is a solid aluminum piece welded on end of the spreader with a groove on the end for the shroud. The retainer is just a 3/16" screw with a piece of SS tubing around it to capture the shroud. The screw enters horizintally from forward. I had to remove the spreader and bring down to dock to remove the screw as it was cooroded badly.
Now I need help with retensioning the shrouds and stays.
Does anyone have the specifications for hte 1982 CS36T with ISOMAT spars?
