Hello: I am new to the forum and recently purchased a 2006 Hunter
25 trailerable sailboat. I wrote Hunter Marine
and sent an e-mail in regards to proper shroud
tension. No answer yet. I have upper shrouds which are discontinuous (attached to an aft angled spreader) and then a second shroud
(is it still termed an upper or now lower shroud?) continues to the deck
. There is no way of directly tensioning the upper shrouds. I have read that on a Hunter 26 that the upper/lower tensions should be 20/10 % of max. breaking strength. Any recommendations at what I should set my Loos gauge at would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Dijon
