Re: Lower shroud tension thoughts

Loos gauges and pre-tension guidelines are for when you are dock side, not when you are sailing. You set them dockside, then go sailing and check.
As KH said, loose but not floppy, mast in column. Actual tension then doesn't matter unless you are near breaking strength (not likely).

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
