Super Maramu Rigging tension
I am sheepishly writing this as I feel that this topic has been addressed numerous times with many responses.
Old age may be creeping in on my side as I am still unable to sift through all the information and find a definative method for adjusting the tension to a correct set point on our standing rigging.
I hear the following from previous comments
- masts must be vertical in relation to the deck.
- Rigging must be tight, tighter than conventionaly built boats
- No bend in the masts at all
Can anyone help me simply understand what tight rigging means? How do I simply know when to stop turning the turn buckles.
Any help here would help put my wifes mind to rest as Dena continually asks this question of me.
