Replying to:Shroud placements
Hello everyone. I bought my boat (an RL24 American Made Swing Keel)several years ago, she's been sitting in my yard for at least five years now. I didn't give her a name before we set sail for the fist time. In retrospect this may have been my demise. On our first outing the rudder broke off, the keel whinch jammed, and of course the outboard didn't work. Within two weeks the port side shroud pulled through the decking and the mast broke off. The reason I am telling all of you this is so I may ask you for some information. I don't know if the previous owner changed the rigging positions (shrouds)or if they are the original. What is the exact position for the inside and outside shrouds (inches or milli's from mast?). I think this guy put night lights in the position for the shrouds. Did the original RL 24 have the outside shroud u bolt face opposite from the inside. Also I need to make\buy a rudder from scratch. I know a glass man, what dimensions should I give. The Tips and mods section doesn't really give length and width dimensions. Sorry for the long read but getting hopeless and found this site.
