Re: pearson 30 1973

I have a 1974 P30. I noticed that there is a hull indent right where the upper stay meets the hull below. Obviously I immediately loosend the uppers. On closer inspection, there are minor indents at the lowers too...and both sides...although you really have to search for it. The indent for the upper is significant...very visible because of the shiny hull.

So, I think the indent is caused by overtight rigging. The question is...is the damage permanent? Or can I just retune and be on my way?
