Upper diamond rigging on Hunter DS

I had a survey done on a Hunter 41DS boat and they listed that one of the rigging in the upper diamond (starboard) side was worn from wearing against the other rigging where they cross. After looking at a few Hunter boats with this design I saw that some touched where they cross and some boats that didn't. (Only three to look at and 25 years apart). Asked the marina about this and they said that they all touch, I don't believe this would be correct. I can't believe that Hunter would design rigging that would touch if tuned correctly. I believe that the ones that touch are not rigged correctly including the one I had surveyed. A question for The sailors out there with the same rigging, are you seeing the same thing? Also I have attached a picture of the upper diamond and asking if in your rig does RD2 goes in front or aft of D2?

Re: Upper diamond rigging on Hunter DS

There are 2-410s, 1 41DS, and one 356 on the here here. All 4 the upper diamond lines touch.
