Hi All, I recently bought a 14.2 and am re-rigging it. I would like turnbuckles on the side shrouds but have two problems: 1) They are expensive; 2) I am cheap. Catalindirect don't offer this option for the 14.2, and I'm thinking of making up the shrouds myself, probably at West Marine--seems easy enough. But in terms of WLL (working load limit) of the turnbuckles, I'm wondering about the range of possibilities. The higher the WLL, the more expensive, of course. The current shrouds are 3/32", but I've read stories online of them breaking. I don't want to go so cheap that I run the risk of a de-masting, especially as my boat has a fixed keel, and I plan to do some heavy weather sailing. West Marine's 3/32" wire (only available in SS 304) has a break point of 1050 lbs. There is also the consideration of maybe going to 1/8" shroud wire with around 1780 lb break point (WLL is evidently calculated at 40% of break point). I suppose I should match the WLL of the turnbuckles I choose to the WLL of the shroud wire I choose. I guess, to be safe, I could go for the 1/8'' with turnbuckles rated at around 3200 breaking strain, which would run close to $200 for the whole shebang. I am wondering if anyone has gone this route, and if anyone else has tried to determine the load placed on the side shrouds of a 14.2 in a decent blow. I'm guessing it is a lot more than 200lb, but probably less than 1000, but I could be barking up the wrong tree entirely. Thanks.
