Hi all

I'm a new wave owner, absolutely loving it. How tight should the shrouds be on the wave, and how does the relative tightness affect the sailing of the boat?

thanks

Joe

I'd say snug, but not "tight". Not necessary to do more than take the slack out and the boat is flexible, so they will just get loose again. They also get loose while sailing when the mast is loaded and bending. This is typical for all cats with rotating / bending masts.
