I did that and the mast is pretty much at 90 degrees to the deck. Perhaps it is raked 1 or 2 degrees towards the bow, not the stern. (The chain plates for the shrouds are located slightly aft of the...

The turnbuckles on one side were maxed out while the other side had some slack. I evened them out. Then I centered the mast using the jib halyard as a measuring tool.

I have two pairs of shrouds, upper and lower, and the uppers are properly tensioned-according to the girl I spoke to. She said to tighten the lowers to the same tension as the uppers, being careful...

Newbie rigging woes

I moved to Florida on November 3rd, 2003 after having lived in the semi-desert areas north of Los Angeles for over 15 years. My first impression, which still holds, was that Florida is one of the...

Imagine, thanks for the encouragement, I needed it. I've posted on other forums as well and catfights broke out over my question. (I guess it gets asked way too often.) I realize how boring it must...

Camaraderie, thank you for your thoughts. I think you've hit the nail on the head. I'm better off with an older bluewater capable boat. Which brings me to my final question.
