Re: Looking for rig tension numbers on a Crown 34

Wire tension is based on wire size. Here's 2 reference sources for the direction of 'how to', including 'how to' without a tension gages but by using a yard/meter stick:

THE most definitive rig tension 'guide' available on the internet ... download/copy it: http://www.riggingandsails.com/pdf/selden-tuning.pdf

and a summary of 'manual and without a tension gage' rig tuning from that above link
