diamond stay backsweep and tension


Recommended Posts

Hi Steve,

Have a look at my post on 5.8 Hull Alignment.

About the only thing I am thinking of changing is moving the rake more to 45-50mm after advice from a previous world champ who can't jump off his own deck ...

Something else to check is to run a stringline down the mast to check it is straight before you evenly tension the diamond wires (count the flats on the nuts as you turn each side).

Supposedly .. if you can just push the diamond wires to the mast approx 300mm above the lower attachment, then you are in the ballpark.
