RE-Attaching spreader to Mast CS36T 1982

Prior,

When I finally got up the mast, I found that the shroud was not in the retainer. My spreader is same as you described with the one screw and bushing holding the shroud in the groove. And yes, the screw was corroded in the spreader. Unfortunately, a PO has just taped the shroud in place as you described, also. I got the spreader off of the mast and repaired the siezed screw.
Now my problem is getting the spreader back on the mast. There ia a single pin that secures the spreader to the mast through a rubber bushing. Getting the pin to align through both sides of the spreader after it passes through the bushing is a real problem. The hole through the bushing is not aligned with with both holes in the spreader. I ordered new bushing from RIGRITE hoping the new one would better align since it was not worn, but no luck. This weekend I will drill out the bushing to get the pin through. Unless someone has done this before and knows THE TRICK.
Most of the CS boats are in climates that require storage during the winter. We are able to sail year round in north Texas - Good News and Bad News.
We never need to rig the mast off the boat. It would sure be easier. I hate heights, but not as much as paying a rigger to do it.
Thanks for all the good input. This site is invaluable.

prior Hi John
I have a 82 cs36T. The spreader caps appear to be pressed and maybe flush rivited to the actual spreader. The shoulds are retained by a 1/4" ss special bolt and bushing which rotates. Mine were siezed and had to be carefully cut out. Then I replaced the bolt with a rubber bush, lanocote and covered the whoe thing with rigging tape due to the unreasonable cost of new spreader boots.
Also I used a rigging guage to check my tensions and found they were very low. I would imagine loose rigging would lead to the shroud coming adrift. Mine were held in place by the rigging tape only prior to the tension adjustment.

sailingfool I think it is posted on CSOA, it is frequently asked for, search the posts.

JohnMaschek Thanks for the information. The manual I have is copies of pieces, but nothing this detailed. Do you know where this may be posted?
I have not seen anything on these sites that mentioned having the manual to download. Does anyone know where this might be?

sailingfool The upper has greater tension than the intermediate. The CS36T manual has a detail section on tuning the rig have you looked at it?

The funtion of these shrouds is to keep the mast from falling off to leeward, they operate unknowing of the backstay. Tune them so when beating in 15-20 knots, the masttrack is straightand the leeward rigging shows a little slack but doesn't flop around.

JohnMaschek Sorry, I'm not confident I have the experience to know what I am looking for.
I am most interested in relative tension of the mid and upper shrouds for utilizing the hydraulic back stay adjuster. Should one be looser than the other?

sailingfool Tune the rigging by sailing the boat, that's all that matters unless you are racing a one-design want want the ability to re-tune at the dock.

Mistery Solved - Never attached

Got up the mast this week end (3 times actually) to survey the problem.
The shroud was not in correct position in the retainer on end of the spreader. Only the plastic cap was holding the shroud AT the end of the spreader. I wonder what other surprises the PO has left for me.
The retainer was not like anything pictured on the RigRite internet site. There is a solid aluminum piece welded on end of the spreader with a groove on the end for the shroud. The retainer is just a 3/16" screw with a piece of SS tubing around it to capture the shroud. The screw enters horizintally from forward. I had to remove the spreader and bring down to dock to remove the screw as it was cooroded badly.
Now I need help with retensioning the shrouds and stays.
Does anyone have the specifications for hte 1982 CS36T with ISOMAT spars?
