Corsair 28cc Diamond Tesion

What are people doing for diamond tension? I have the standard rotating aluminum mast. Mine is a 28cc, but the mast configuration below the hounds is essentially the same as for 28R.  I'm having the boat measured for a new main and want to get the pre-bend set. Given the dimensions of the mast and the small sweep angle of the spreaders, I don't expect a lot of prebend is possible.

Hi, 

I think I've just replied to you on the f-boat forum.

On my 28R with a Southern Spars carbon mast... I use 2" or 50mm of prebend.

This was recommended to me by southern spars and a few sail makers - Dave Calvert included.

cheers

Can, 

Thanks for the responses.  I thought with two forums I might get responses from more than one person, but got more than one response from one person! :rolleyes:   I'll see what I can accomplish on my rig.
