Bigger than I expected!

Today this has arrived

A 5000kg crane scale. Now we can test our rigging by measuring both the input (the tension we apply to the end of the lashing) and the output (how much tension is in the actual shroud or chainplate loop).

But I hadn’t realised that a 5000kg scale would be so much larger than the 1000kg scale we have used so far!
