Re: Shroud attachment location at the chainplates

Actually that bow you have looks pretty normal. It's called pre-bend, and is critical for good upwind sailing. Without knowing what boat you have I couldn't guess at how much you need, but my Olson 30 needs about 4", while a J-35 carries almost 17" of pre-bend.
