Shroud cable tension?
by Owen Peterson
I have had a number of fiberglass sailboats and over the years had become very adapt to setting the proper tension for all the support cables (forestay, shrouds, backstay).
But I have been told by a few people that the shroud tension is much less on a wooded boat.
And since mine also has wooden mast (main and mizzen) I have been told it should be even less.
Does anyone have any knowledge of just how tight or non-tight these cables should be?
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
