the whole thing with the rig tuning is that Schock told me some basic numbers to go off of what i currently had. i said i just need to know what is too much. they recommended my current settings. 35 upper and about 25 lower. those figures are off the loose gage so im not exactly sure about the true value of lbs .

No evidence of the same issue on the other side?

Also I believe there are two types of Loos gauges... with different scales. Hopefully you used the right one.

the other side has the wooden separating partition from the galley to head so there is a little more structural integrity on the starboard side..

Good - Tom is traveling and out of reach of contact; we at the factory were trying to understand what could possibly the root cause.

Although this crack has been there for some time and doesn't seem to be getting any worse, I would recommend that it be repaired. You will need to clean away the paint and fractured glass. Then patch the area by filling the crack with epoxy putty. Then put fiberglass cloth over the area. Once it is dry, you can sand it and paint it. Tom Schock

Uhm, loose standing rigging puts higher loads (under sail) on the chainplates than tight standing rigging does, so tuning the rig is not the problem.

thank you guys for the responses and input! i will be glassing over as soon as i can to make the necessary repairs and appreciate you guys at Schock looking into the issue. I agree allthumbs, when i approached Schock via the phone i explained i wanted to tune my rig and gave them the numbers i had running at the time, i wanted to know what was too little and what was too much. the rigging is where they told me i should be at but some people seem to think it is wrong. no offense to anyone but i am sticking with the numbers the manufacturing company gives me unless there was obvious proof that they were wrong. the shrouds used to be way too slack under load and now there is barely any play and the mast stays straight which is what they told me over the phone. thanks again everyone!

In my opinion this is structural. The loads from the rigging are transferred to the hull from that part. I had nearly the same problem on a different boat and the mast fell down a F4 wind. Make sure you repair that place carefully. The tension of the rigging should be transferred to the hull so it must be really strong. A very good epoxy and fiber rfepair is needed.
