Going back to the description of my floppy spreaders! They are the tubular type and are hopefully going to be stable when the mast is raised and shroud tension is applied.
The wooden mast is definately stiffer than the alloy and therefore maybe it would be overkill to try and set it up with an adjustable set of spreaders.
Sounds like there will be a little bit of fettling when it comes to the rig.
Hope the rain doesn’t appear as I really want to get the decks epoxied this weekend!
