Anyone have pics of their spreaders???
My buddy has CL 30 and his spreaders are not like yours, they are symmetrical. However, though they MAY have been installed on the wrong sides, my rigger sees that and calls it a purely cosmetic problem. My spreaders look a bit like that and he assured me to not worry about it. In any case as you sight up the shroud
does it appear the spreader is pushing it out of alignment?
If it seems to be a problem it can be corrected without taking the mast down. Personally I'd leave them.
Have you seen your boat
out of the water? I am curious if you have osmotic blisters
. He had quite a few. The hull
is so thick though they aren't worth losing sleep over.
