I just got a 2005 Getaway and I'm new to sailing catamarans. When I setup the mast tang, 2 shrouds & jib, the 8mm shackle look like it has just enough space. Are the 2 trapeze wires suppose to go at the same place or in an other hole/shackle? Also, do the trapeze have weight limits? I'm 6'4" 285lbs, will it over stress the mast/comptip?

The upper most hole for the trap shackle pin... hoop / bell of the shackle passes through the center larger hole. Wires hang from the bell to either side of the tang.

Wire and mast can handle it.
