In the owners manual they say to make the rig tight. How much is enough? I currently have enought tention so that when i am on a reach i can see slack on the lee stay. My other boats (non Hobie) rig this way. Do i need to add more tension on the rig?

Thanks!

You will always get the lee shroud to be a bit slack when sailing. As the mast bends under load the wires get looser.
