Re: standing rigging

There are three shrouds each side, the middle being the upper, the two lowers arent crossed if thats what you mean. But, are the fwd n aft lowers different lengths? Thanks for the trick using the halyard to see if the mast is centered athwarships, Mine is not. But since the strbrd, lower, aft shroud on the side to which its leaning is not adjustable, due to the wire length (t-buckle is also loosened to its last thread), I think Ill just have to get a pro to check it out and do correct measurements. I lack a bosun chair and the confidence to step the mast myself, anyway the two shrouds would still be fairly useless to measure since theyre either too short or long anyway. Thanks a lot for reading and all the help; FASTER, CALEBD, JUST MESSINWIT!!
