How many shrouds? 1Tue 15 Mar 2011 21:48:08
Muddy Paws Muddy Paws Mon 14 Mar 2011 23:57:21 Looking at other people's photos I seem to have more stays. I have split backstay, forestay, cap shrouds and fore and aft lowers. The deck fittings are all identical so the inners were all fitted at the same time and the mast has gangs for both. Am I unusual smile


Mark Mark Tue 15 Mar 2011 21:48:08 I've split backstay, roller reefing as the 4 stay and 2 sets of shrouds/stays. 1 set goes to the lower fittings just below the spreaders - attaches to the forward side deck eyes/hoops. 2nd set goes up to the mast head via the spreader - attaches to the rear side deck eyes/hoops.

Looking at the brochure picture it looks like there was only 1 set of lowers so it sounds like you have an extra set going to the rear side eyes/hoops.
