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?
