Re: Spreaders for Pearson 10M
Are your halyards 'chafing' during storage or during use? I'd expect a P10M to have internal halyards, which would mean they chafe when stored at the mast base.. if so you can minimize the issue by storing the halyards on the toerails away from the mast and rig when not sailing.
One would think the spreader root attachments were 'standard' for the boat.. some bendy rigs need that spreader mobility to absorb the mast bend, on a P10M that's also something you might expect. But I'd also expect a rigger to recognize that if it's 'normal'.. maybe get a second rigger's take on it all?
