That may be because the hull will "relax" and return towards a pre-stressed shape. So the distances between the fittings at the deck/mast become longer and your shouds will get a bit longer.

camaraderie Yep...just use the halyard. Or the halyard AND the topping lift if you're stressed about it! (g)

Chainplate Inspection w/Rigging Up

Hi Folks,

Wonder if any of you have experience removing/inspecting/replacing the chainplate for your aft stay while the rigging is still up. I intend to replace that chainplate on my T37 and would prefer not to take the mast down to do it. How can this be done safely? Should I use a halyard run aft to keep tension on the mast while removing the aft stay?

Any tips or experiences woudl be much appreciated.
