[Amel] Standing Rigging Tension


Richard03801 <richard03801@...>
 

Hi all the stays need to be very tight. Using a wood hammer handle tap each stay if it has a sharp ring its good if "flat" it is not. When going to the wind the lee stays must not go slack.
When adjusting be sure to lay on deck and look up the mast to be sure you are keeping it in column/ straight.

Richard,

For the Maramu, which as you know is single spreader, do you advise that level of tension on aft lowers as well?

Yep all of the Amels require a very tightlt tensioned rig. There are some Potter posts that also talk about tightly tensioned deck stepped Amel masts.
