Never made it to the water today. Wasn't any wind so I rigged it in the yard as best I could. Realized that I don't seem to have the sheets understood yet either. You can see another thread I started today trying to work out the furler questions I have. Got advice from more northwest sailors. BC to be exact.
Regarding your comment about shroud tension. There is good(I hope) detail about all 8 wires in the second paragraph of A. MAST TUNE
in the manual found at www3.sympatico.ca/sailpair/21stuff/manual.html
I still have:
1. Is the 3" block of wood under my mast original equipment?
2. How should main sheet be strung?
YAYYYY! FOUND ANSWER AT SYMPATICO
3. How should jib sheets be led in ref to upper/lower shrouds
FROM PICS LOOKS LIKE ALL OUTSIDE OF SHROUDS
4. Looks like both jib and Genny will be hitting the dual jumper stays.
But getting there!
