Are you serious about swimming? You need it.

I've been sailing a recently restored Catalina 22 for a few months but I couldn't get the standing rigging right.

This Loos tension gauge is easy to use, accurate and allowed me to get my rig up to factory specs quickly and the results were immediately noticeable in the boat's performance.

If like me you have 1/4 inch cable, you can get a smaller or larger diameter version depending on whether you think…

  • Check, measure and inspect
  • I will add later

worth your money.

This is a Loos sensor, what else do you need to know. I had just moved a stay and wanted to write down all the charges. Glad I did, a couple of the lower shrouds weren't tight enough and I had the riggers adjust them. (Yes. I could have customized them, but they got it wrong!) Even if you don't plan on customizing your own rig, it costs money to keep things in check. One note: I didn't buy the 'right one', I should have bought those in the next step below as some shrouds are a bit small…
