Shroud Attachment

I want to replace my standing rigging. Can someone tell me how to remove the shrouds from the spreader bases?

Re: Shroud Attachment

Under that raised flange there will be cotter pins that hold the clevis pins in place. Have someone safety hoist you up and with the proper tools, ..... ,but wait! You might be sawing off the limb that you're sitting on! What's you total rig support? Don't remove all at once!

Re: Shroud Attachment

Agree.. ought to be cotter pins or rings under the spreader plate with the tangs. Not the nicest access, though, it will be tight.

As long as you can get underneath these to access the pins you should be able to do the lowers one at a time from a chair. If it's a wholesale standing rigging replacement you're really best to drop the mast for that job, remove all stays, take them to a rigger for duplication and reverse the process.

Re: Shroud Attachment

Another angle:

Zooming in, I can see the cotter pins. How hard can it POSSIBLY be, removing two cotter pins while dangling 25 feet in the air, and your two winch hands are carrying on a casual conversation about chicken wraps?

Re: Shroud Attachment

Can I remove one from each side? Port forward stroud and starboard aft? Or is that a bit risky? I am thinking of sending the entire old stuff to rigrite or riggingonly, one or two pieces at a time.

That would be fine as long as you're not planning to go for a sail in the meantime

Re: Shroud Attachment

I'd just drop the mast in a yard and do it all at once. It'll take a lot less time and be a lot less hassle for only a little more money.

You could also inspect the rest of the rig while it is down.

You are replacing the standing rigging..
Are you aware that the mast tangs also can break.
Replacing the wires without checking the rest of the vital components is close to useless.

Re: Shroud Attachment

I understand your point about the tangs. I have one wire that is frayed above the turnbuckle, and would like to replace it. I do not feel comfortable sailing in moderate winds with this one frayed shroud.
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.
