I have a new 211 and after the first few outings I notice that the shroud tension has slackened. I understand that this is normal on a new boat. Can anyone tell me what the tension should be? The owners manual is very basic and gives no information on shroud tension.
Also, how do I know I have the correct tension, do I need to buy a tension checker or is there another way of doing it?
The standard mainsheet block is difficult to uncleat on a beat because the cleat faces downwards. An easy way to uncleat is to step on the sheet but this is not quick enough (when a severe gust hits)and can't be done when sitting out. Has anyone found a good alternative block?
