The only pin you should have to remove when rigging or de-rigging is the forestay connection, so one ring and clevis is not that bad is it?
Matt - Thanks for the reply. I recently posted about my troubles stepping the mast. I could not get the forestay connection to reach the bridles without undoing the two shrouds, attaching the forestay and then going back and re-attaching the shrouds. Before I undid the shrouds, my forestay needed another 4-6 inches to reach the bridles.
Even though the shroud pin positions had not been changed since the boat was previously rigged on the dealer's lot, this probem occurred. I do not know why and was thinking that perhaps easier pin removal/insertion would save time in the event this occurs again in the future. I cannot understand how this happened. I will keep the standard clevis pins since they are the safest, but will have to practice rigging the mast and forestay to see if it's me or the boat.
