Re: Reaching struts

One thing you might want to look into.. the strut is usually 'lashed' to the shrouds to prevent it swinging aft (or forward, depending how it's aligning with the shrouds) under load.. a clew-strap style velcro strap might do the trick, much quicker to install and remove than a rope or webbing lashing.
