Great question, Bill. I've just made up new uppers (with StayLock terminals). Our spreaders were held in place by nothing except the tape around a leather spreader boot. Is that normal? I've heard/read that you are supposed to "tap" the spreaders up or down till you get them so the bisect the angle. Any more specific instructions would be appreciated before I again climb the mast. BTW, the "Mast Mate" steps that came with our boat are easy and Very Secure feeling to someone who no longer likes heights.

OK, so maybe the tuning wasn't quite so easy... it seems I have pretty excessive headstay sag. When close hauled in 15 kts with a 130% genoa, I'm getting about 10" of sag at the mid point of the headstay - seems like rather a lot... How much should I be getting?

I'm tempted to tighten the backstay a whole bunch to tighten the headstay - and it'll do wonders for the pretty loose forestay too...

Any pointers?
