In a word, no. Redesigning the rig is going to be far less advantageous than keeping the rigging fresh and the rig tuned.

Your boat was designed in 1967. It was probably built prior to 1975? It would certainly be a good time to consider replacing the chainplates should they still be original. It might also be a good time to consider replacing the standing rigging as well, depending on how long it's been standing. Such maintenance will go a lot further to keep your boat happy than adding double lower shrouds.

chainplates are 10mm thick and solidly fixed...more then any boat iv seen...standing riggings look new as most of my sails...I will have them checked by a more experienced then me.
why do you say my boat was desingned in 1967? many hinterhoeller h28 have been made in 1964 1965 1966 at least five in the classifyeds as we speche.

it says right under my avatar hinterhoeller H-28 1964...
however iv seen an other of the same year and its chainplates where thin maybe 1/8in or less...so they must have been changed on my boat...also I asked why not to contradict Bash but only to get more information...theres alot of contradicting info on these boats, especialy in regards to date of construction..
cheers

Like I said if you would have given ... your avatar means nothing more then a boat you may like or a wish-list boat. So What are your intend use, ie day sailing weekday racing. When sailing do you have mast bending problems? What is making you question the strenght of your rig.

I'd be surprised to see a 28ft mono with just one lower shroud... or just two lowers and nothing to the masthead.. mine's only 21ft and thats 3 each side..
Jobi... take a look at your mast and spreaders and check for fittings there... could give you the info you need

yes iv seen that HR-28 has six lateral shrouds...H-28 only 2 lateral shrouds...thats why I asked.

I was wondering if this modification was important?

I belive my boat has only one lower shroud...both upper and lower attaches to the same chainplate.
