Just got a "ready to sail" 17 sport, went to rig it and found I was a few pins short, everything else seemed to check out, not a big deal. But after stepping the mast I found that even with both shrouds and forestay as far down as they could go the mast is raked too far back and even still the shrouds have plenty too much slack. No obvious problems like chained clevises at tang or alternate upper hole that could be used in the tang. Besides I would only understand that if I was an inch or two at most too loose. But this is a good 5-6 inches too much. Never used a 17, still a chance I made an obvious error but it not looking too likely. Will post pics in a few.
