Re: Grampian 26

Hello! I have recently acquired a G26, 1968, hull #27. She is in decent condish. I was trying to adjust the shrouds because the mast appears to be leaning to starboard but the lowers seem to be all out of whack- the uppers seem ok and well balanced, but the lowers either need to be replaced, or switched. Do they stretch? can I just buy an approximate length of wire and adjust and use the Hayne Hi Mod compression fitting? How tight should they be? The turnbuckles and threads all look and function ok, so do the fore and backstay. If anyone has any information concerning the G26 shrouds, I would love to hear from you! Thanks for reading
