    Hello guys,
    Do you know how do they do to trim a big wooden mast from this kind of boat? It is something I've always been ínterested in. How do they check the tension and the straightness? It should be something very complicated as al the másts are attached to each other. Thanks!

    If they have specs for the rig, they use a tension meter.
