sailguy40 is on a distinguished road
The rigging just seems strange on this boat. I have 6 lines... a backstay, a forestay and two shrouds on each side which at first seems normal. The backstay has a stay extender which is attached to a stay adjuster. The way this is setup, it should at least have a toggle so it won't bend the adjuster but it is already bent. The forestay is using a turnbuckle and seems to be fine other then that buckle is closed completely. It appears to me, the forestay is too long because that is a small turnbuckle and still is completely closed. All 4 shrouds have extenders on them. The upper shrouds hook to the shroud adjusters just fine. The lower shrouds are about 4 inches too short even with the extenders on. I think he will certainly have to contact the guy he purchased the boat from and ask him. In the meantime, I will look it all over yet once again but I can't see too much I could do differently.
