I already removed the spreaders and the black anodized aluminum bar is most definitely bent.
It is definitely more than a rig tuning problem. Because rod riggin requires bends at the spreader tips it is very obvious the upper portion of the shroud could not be tensioned with the spreader in the position it is in.
I should add that I did not see this before and neither did the surveyor. I think it happened recently. The rig was in a very busy place in the marina. In fact 3 weeks ago I complained to the yard manager because every time I came to the yard the rig was moved. I told him I was concerned something might happen to it.
Well needless to say I am glad I mentioned it to him. This morning I called him and told him I thought someone had either dropped the rig on teh spreader or hit the spreader with a car or forklift. He is going to look at it and get back to me.
We did not get into it, but once he gets back to me I am hoping they will fix it since it was due to the fact they did not find a proper place to put my mast.
