It’s such a nice feeling having new shrouds, especially when the old ones were in as bad of shape as these. I am showing only one of the old shrouds below but the other side was just as bad. The shiny new one is my port side. I had to climb to the top of my mast and remove them both. I have steps on my mast that makes it easy. But it actually isn’t that easy. You dont want to drop anything on the fiberglass below from that height, including yourself. It’s 35 feet off the deck. Thats about 3 stories I guess.
