The best advice I''ve gotten on that subject is just tight enough to keep the stick straight and in the middle of the boat. (I''m assuming you do not have a "bendy" mast with baby stays, etc.) Go to windward in a brisk breeze and just take the slack out of the leeward shrouds. Make the uppers a little tighter than the lowers. Use a tensiometer to make the two sides equal after you are back at the dock. A lot of people like to set them up tight as possible, but I don''t know what good it does to put a lot of unnecessary strain on everything

You guys& gals were a great help to me when i was looking for info on my running rigging. I am now on standing rigging. I was hopeing some one might be able to give me some insite on how much tension my standing rigging should be under. I am certian it is way to loose as it is( uneducated guess). As a general rule ( if there is one) how would one rate a heathly Rig tension ? Taunt? Firm? unmovable?

Thanks in advance for your help.
