    Hi all,

    Was hoping for some help/info... I've got a '78 25 Swing Keel. I'm pretty sure each of the six shrouds is loose, and was hoping someone could tell me what tension they should be at?

    Thanks!

    The Catalina 25 website & forum is super active. That's why there is no Catalina 25 specific section here.
    Go here:

    http://www.catalina-capri-25s.org


    There is a tuning guide on that website, but to quickly answer, no your shrouds shouldn't all be loose.
    I have a Catalina 25 Swing Keel and the downwind shrouds shouldn't be tight while sailing according to Catalina.
