We are an american boat, with everything sized in inches. We are currently having the mast
and standing rigging
replaced in Lisbon, and I am having a problem matching a metric mast
to my imperial chainplates and other equipment
Sparcraft keeps telling me not to worry about it, and that they will match everything up. Color me skeptical, because it looks to me like they plan on using 12mm pins for the mast tangs to fit 12.7mm holes in the Hi-Mod terminals. For the cap shrouds, it is a larger mismatch - 16 mm pin in an 18 mm hole.
So, how close does the match between clevis pin size and the hole in an eye terminal need to be?
