New question on a C28

Dear Sirs,

On a C28 I saw a block and tackle used to tension the shrouds. Do you have any hints what kind of loads this system has to cope with on a Dash?

Additionally I think of adding a second pair of shrouds very near to genoa outlet to compensate mast bending to leeward when in higher winds (>10kn).

Warm regards from germany. Felix.

You probably saw a boat equipped with synthetic shrouds. These are not blocks but more commonly called deadeyes.
