Re: Shroud attachment location at the chainplates
I had looked at your pictures but it wasn't clear to me regarding the placement - attachment points of your shrouds vs your mast. Your uppers should be even with your mast. It seems to me that most boats have 2 sets of lowers, 1 set attaches to the chainplates forward of the mast and another aft. You only have 1 set of lowers. That should attach aft. Hopefully that adds enough pressure to counteract the forward pressure of a properly tensioned inner forestay. If not, you should consider addition of running backstay.
