Smile spreader repair

Just put up mast on my 1994, hunter 26 and looked up at the end and saw that one of my spreaders was bent down, I have the boat in the slip now and am wondering how to replace either the spreader connector or can the spreader be bent back up, The tension on my one shroud is limp. Can I repair this at the slip, if so how difficult. Just a rookie from Idaho looking for some help. Thanks!!!!

spreader

Im at home now, 2 hours from lake, only thing i can think of is that my flag rope caught on the side of rail and was pulled tight as I was raising mast. I had to slip it off a hook that it caught on but was able to do it by hand.

i just checked online to see how the spreader connects to the shroud and couldnt find a clear pic.
youll likely have to drop the mast again to remove the spreader.

Unless the spreader is damaged, you may be able to just move the spreader back into the proper position. It could have just been moved. Without seeing a high-resolution photo of the issue, can't really say much. Most spreaders will move through a range of motion without serious problems, and yours may just need to be moved back into the proper position.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
