Upper Shrouds for CP-16.5, Improved, <-2010

Part #: HI2028
Upper shroud set for Capri 16.5. Made from type 316 uncoated stainless steel wire.

Sold per pair.
• Length (pin in fork to pin in fork): 18' 2-5/8"
• Width of fork outside: ~.38"
• Width of fork outside: ~.19"

1) We use an aircraft fork at the top of the new shroud. Clevis and cotter pins are supplied for each fork. Cut the thimble at the top of your off your old shroud off or the tang. Pin the new shroud onto the hole in the tang using the provided clevis and cotter pins. This method avoids having to remove the old tangs which sometimes results in compromising the self tapped threads in the aluminum mast.

The outside width of the forks is less than the inside width of the standard rigging adjusters so they will fit inside of the adjuster. Check the inside width of your adjusters to confirm this is true for your adjusters.

2) We also use an aircraft fork at the base of each shroud as the thimbles specified for 1/8" wire result in a loop that is too large to fit into the shroud adjusters.

3) We build these for you to the typical length of 18' 2-5/8" pin to pin. Since we make these to a nominal length of 18' 2-5/8", we highly recommend you measure your old rigging to check for variations from this standard dimension. If you need a different length, please call our sales staff for assistance.

4) By ordering this part you agree to having it made to the standard 18 2-5/8" length. Once you order it we are going to build it just for you, just as you asked. We never want to see it again, and no one else wants it either. So be careful and order it correctly the first time because it can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into something different!

5) In 2010 Catalina started supplying their boats with Seldén masts and standing rigging. Current production Capri 16.5 (hulls 1050 and up) are now equipped with Seldén rigs. These boats require different mast fittings. If your boat has a Seldén rig, call our Technical Support at 916/843-1971.

6) The length of this item is based on the original factory specifications. However, the previous owner, like Captain Jack Sparrow, may have had an entirely different idea about how to rig a boat! Please confirm this is the correct length for your particular boat. We cut it from a long length and can't splice it back together again. Your order cannot be canceled, returned or exchanged, but, like Jack, you may have a different idea of what you can use it for!
