[C38] Spreaders.

Mine have always moved even after adjustment, I have looked for a way to secure them to the shroud once adjusted but have not found anything that would work, good luck.  After adjustment be sure to check mast is still in alignment.  I run a 100 foot tape up the mast on the main halyard and then measure to a point athwartship of the mast on the toe rail,  measured back from the bow.  The deck may not be symmetrical in its layout so you can’t count on counting stanchion openings or anything else.  Also if you adjust the spreaders they will increase or decrease your shroud tension, so you will want to check them with a loos guage and then check mast head alignment again and so forth and so forth until its dialed in.   Also when measuring from the mast head down to the deck on each side, don’t forget that one dimension will be off about ½” from the other based on which side of the mast the sheave is located.

Big rubber mallet, you can move them under load if its small, if it’s a big adjustment loosen them

According to the catalina 38 one design racing rules, the uppers are 32" and the
lowers are 40".  But how do I do it? Maybe loosen the shrouds, move the spreaders to the proper angle and have someone below tighten the shrouds while I hold it at the proper angle?

Measure the distance from the tip of the spreader to the edge of the mast,  Not sure what it is supposed to be but I think it is in a previous thread from years ago.

Can someone explain how to properly adjust the spreader angles?  I know that the uppers are 7 degrees and the lowers are 1 degree.

Thank you guys,
