Re: Shroud Attachment

If you have one shroud that's failed then the rest are probably not far behind. Been there done that. I replaced mine myself for at least 50% cheaper

Why don't you do them yourself with norseman or sta-loks?....It's easy and you will save a sh**load.



What's up with the dufus spam above?? Go get him mods

Re: Shroud Attachment

just out of interest, I have a C&C 26 (1ft shorter than yours) and replaced all standing rigging, including turnbuckles, a couple of seasons ago. (backstay; forestay; 2 cap shrouds and 2 lower shrouds - I note you have 4 lower shrouds).
Cost was $1500 CDN, so your going to be in the $2K neibourhood to replace
it all.

Am I right in assuming the tangs will need to be removed for inspection? If so, then I may as well hang it up for the season, and the boat has only been in the water for six months.
Then replace the damaged shroud (or the pair)

You can inspect with the mast up - but it's easier done with the mast down.

You should consider replacing the rest of the standing rigging in a not to distant future.

You could also inspect the rest of the rig while it is down.

You are replacing the standing rigging..
Are you aware that the mast tangs also can break.
Replacing the wires without checking the rest of the vital components is close to useless.

That would be fine as long as you're not planning to go for a sail in the meantime

Re: Shroud Attachment

Another angle:

Zooming in, I can see the cotter pins. How hard can it POSSIBLY be, removing two cotter pins while dangling 25 feet in the air, and your two winch hands are carrying on a casual conversation about chicken wraps?

Re: Shroud Attachment

Agree.. ought to be cotter pins or rings under the spreader plate with the tangs. Not the nicest access, though, it will be tight.

As long as you can get underneath these to access the pins you should be able to do the lowers one at a time from a chair. If it's a wholesale standing rigging replacement you're really best to drop the mast for that job, remove all stays, take them to a rigger for duplication and reverse the process.
