MAST TUNING / Description

Correctly tuned masts reduce the effort of the sailing yacht and its crew, increase the wheelman's potential, and the navigation is more secure in difficult situations.
At the same time the value of the sailing yacht rises and the damages on sails are rare.

Mast tuning includes:

check off all shrouds, forestay and backstay bases
slacken of all shrouds and backstays, visual check of terminals, wires, clamps, spreaders, all roller segments and mast
lubrication of clamps, upper and lower furler bearing, mast winch/roll-up worm gear (depending on the boat type) and upper roller bearing
placing the mast midships
tuning up (adjustment) of all shrouds and backstays on factory settings (depending on the boat and mast type)
lubrication of the mast block
marking the maximum at sliding backstays
mast tuning certificate (all essential mast settings will be presented to the client)

The owner of the sailing yacht will be informed about the noticed defects.The same will not be removed on our own initiative increasing the work costs.
(Noticed defects include: cracked roller segment, faulty roll traveller, mast clamp etc.).
The price includes costs for small supplies (split pins, G-fuses, lubricant).
