      We didn’t manage a day off last week to do anything. Also the garden is still very soft to walk on.
      In the first tests with our rig at home we loaded shrouds to about 2700kg at which point we felt that the timber rig was at its limit.
      Thanks for the encouragement.

      We stretched another mizzen shroud on Friday. Took it to 2,200kg to remove constructional stretch
