Hi folks,
I have searched everywhere for loos gauge numbers for the diamonds on an '02 Bimare 18HT, and have not been able to find any info. So, I was hoping someone here could help.
Thanks very much,
Vince

Seriously Dave, would you really keep settings like this secret?

I would treat it like any other boat, start off with a base with the spreaders around 50mm behind the mast and 38 on a loose gauge then adjust rake and tension until the mast matched the sail and enough power for the crew weight your carrying.

ultimately no setting anyone will give you will be accurate because there are too many variables in play.

I pm'd Vince because I didn't trust my memory, and referred him to the person who clued me in. And I wasn't comfortable posting his name here without his permission.

Your advice is excellent, and appreciated, I'm sure.
