The Masthead
Alan Gilbert’s Comment
Gentleman -
I read the above subject problem [the March 2012 Know It
All Question] and I am a bit confused by the description as it
relates to the geometry shown in the illustration, as follows;
The description contains the verbiage "...double lowers...".
My understanding of double lowers (2 x D1) means one
lands forward of the lower vertical should (V1), in this case
the 5/16" shroud, and one lands aft of the V1. In this sce-
nario there would be only one shroud attached to the V1
chain plate, while the illustration shows 2. . . .

Dave Gerr’s reply
Alan:
Ah, I see the problem. Somehow, I described the wrong
rig?!
In fact, the rig pictured is a single spreader rig with single
lowers. The two shrouds pictured as attached to the single
chainplate lug are the lower and the upper. No wonder you
were confused. I drew up the drawing and question for this
Know It All question a couple of months before I wrote the
question for this issue. Somehow, I described a different rig
than the one pictured.
Luckily, none of this affects that actual question. The
shrouds, their breaking strengths, their configuration, and
the chainplate lug itself are correct as shown in the question
and the answer to the question is unchanged, but I can cer-
tainly see how you'd be scratching your head about the de-
scription of the rig. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for point-
ing out the error.
Cheers,
Dave
