Rigging Maintenance

During this years rigging of Shamrock it was found that the main topping lift, the wire and rope that supports the end of the main boom, was short due to a slight change in the way she is rigged. At the time a temporary fix was implemented with a length of tatty nylon rope. With a couple of eye splices and another trip to the top of the mast this has now been corrected by renewing the main topping lift purchase rope with a longer one.
