I had posed this question directly to Joel Potter, and he indicated that he
wanted to answer the question through the Amel Group site. I am probably going
to follow Richards advice, but I will wait until I see the post from Joel.

I had a similar problem, can you advise me Richard the correct sequence to do

I had the standing rigging replaced on my maramu last year by a reputable
rigger. At the dock when the wind comes from abeam at 10 to 15 knots, the masts
start pumping. The main moreso than the mizzen. I don't remember this happening
before. I recall other posts concerning the tensioning of the rigging, and that
Amels are tensioned higher at the Amel yard than other vessels. Do other Amel
owners, particularily maramu owner have this problem? and or is this simply a
question of improper tensioning?
