Traditional lower shrouds

Looping lower shrouds over the cross trees. Is it traditionally port over starboard or starboard over port?

I can find anything on it googling. Had a book about it once, but now I forget.

Thanks

Re: Traditional lower shrouds

Don't understand the question are you talking about spreaders?

Re: Traditional lower shrouds

John Leather's Gaff Rig tells all .Actually it shouldn't matter as long as the lengths are considered. But if I remember how I used to do it ,it's starboard first on and then port .alternating I had 3 shrouds each side 4 from hounds and 2 from truck. Although I doubt you need to know, the Mathew Walker goes foreward inboard starb'd and aft inboard port. Pissis me off that when my old Thane was professionaly rerigged they did it all asbackwards and no body noticed.

It's about a gaff-rigged boat. Cross trees are on a wooden mast. Spreaders are on a Marconi rig.

I'm just being picky, really, but would like to set them on traditionally if possible. Somewhere I had the info, but not now when I need it. Typical...
