Re: Rigging tension gauge
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In Martinique and St Thomas they use a type of hydraulic tension measuring device with a digital readout.
I am sure many of the bigger Brewer yards around Boston use these gauges. I am also sure that yards in Newport can measure wire well over 12 mm. My friend had his boat rerigged and the capstays were over 18 mm.
I have the Loos pt3M gauge on board which goes up to 10 mm. I really only need it when I drop the mizzen backstays to get into a smaller travel lift.
Over the 16 years that I owned kimberlite before changing the rigging I found very little to no stretch in the cable.
