Re: How can this happen? Shroud Tension

Have you had a chance to see if something got twisted at the top of shroud? It would now be untwisted, of course, but might be damaged.

Re: How can this happen? Shroud Tension

I went down to the boat yesterday and reviewed everything mentioned in everyone's responses...all seems to be in order. I'm wondering if theyl just stretched a bit under load. It was blowing pretty hard Sunday, teens gusting to low 20's. Still the crazy part is only the lowers loosened...the uppers stayed put.

Re: How can this happen? Shroud Tension

You have aft and forward lowers? Both sets are loose now?

No just one set of lowers. Spreaders are straight, not swept.
