Re: Jeanneau Poker 28ft - Spreaders

Congrats on the new boat and welcome to the forum.

It would seem you did not have a survey done of the boat, or this would have been identified. The standing rigging is important for both sailing efficiency and safety. If you're unfamiliar, I highly suggest hiring a professional rigger to spend a few hours with you. Knowing the rig is safe and properly tuned is huge. A 28ft boat is on the bubble over whether one can climb the mast. Depends a bit on the weight of the climber too.

I'm not specifically familiar with your rig. With a pair binoculars, you should easily be able to tell if the shrouds are free floating through the end of the spreaders.

It's worth the initial investment in the pro and you may be able to take it from there.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
