    Calculating Length of line for Total Seizing Length

    Correct Uwe, this overall was just an excersise in playing around with math. I would not (including myself) would use this unless I were seizing the entire length of the first shroud. I have read that sometimes the first pair of shrouds were wrapped so as the sails would not wear down the...

    I feel compelled to make a comment: I agree, yes, it is nice to have large numbers. It does have a "wow" factor to it. To me, retention and relevancy is very important. I know a lot of us share a common bond. "If we shall boast, let us boast about the friends and family we have...
