Captain Al Posted November 12, 2015 Share #1 Posted November 12, 2015 I'm having a heck of a time getting the lanyards between the deadeyes of shrouds from not twisting up. They seem to want to go with the lay of the thread of the shroud above them. I'm ok until I put the least bit of tension on the lanyards. When I do, they spin around. What are the possible causes of this and cures? The deadeyes are starting out parallel to each other, and the lower ones (in the channel) are free to swivel. Could it be that I just need to hold the shroud in place as I string the deadeyes? It seems like this would just delay the twisting until I was done with the deadeyes and then whammo, it would twist up into the solid mass of 6 strands again. robert952 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
