Re: rigging ideas
one of the issues with going shroud less, though. your mast tube has to be dead nuts on perfect in regards to fore'/aft/port/stbd vertical alignment as well as being located properly for your CE/CLR if its off, then you've lost potential performance..
One reason I like decks stepped shrouded rigs is that you can always tweak them and much more adustability...
now that I have a milling machine and can build things "square" I may take a delrin or teflon block or hunk o luminum and give it a go... but then it means I need to modify all my current rigs to be shroud less...so i have more options in regards to rigs...
for the "yanks" Aerospace composites sells roll wrapped tubes in their online store, as does goodwinds.... I have had flawless service from both..
