"Sail & Rig Tuning" by Ivan Dedekam"
I have this book and was re-reading last night- very good book. One thing Dedekam says is to tension the rig as tight as possible, with forestay (as I remember- going above 30% uts). According to other posters, this could lead to fatigue failure over time.- Thoughts?
