Am I right in assuming the tangs will need to be removed for inspection? If so, then I may as well hang it up for the season, and the boat has only been in the water for six months.
Then replace the damaged shroud (or the pair)

You can inspect with the mast up - but it's easier done with the mast down.

You should consider replacing the rest of the standing rigging in a not to distant future.

Re: Shroud Attachment

just out of interest, I have a C&C 26 (1ft shorter than yours) and replaced all standing rigging, including turnbuckles, a couple of seasons ago. (backstay; forestay; 2 cap shrouds and 2 lower shrouds - I note you have 4 lower shrouds).
Cost was $1500 CDN, so your going to be in the $2K neibourhood to replace
it all.

Re: Shroud Attachment

If you have one shroud that's failed then the rest are probably not far behind. Been there done that. I replaced mine myself for at least 50% cheaper

Why don't you do them yourself with norseman or sta-loks?....It's easy and you will save a sh**load.



What's up with the dufus spam above?? Go get him mods
