I'm looking to see if anyone else is having problems with rigging breaking on cats. We are on a large 58ft cat with 22mm backstays and a 19mm cross stay. We have broken the cross stay three times and broke a backstay reciently.
Every time we have broken a stay it's been in relitivly calm conditons. Not pushihing hard and in fact when the cross stay broke we were motoring into 20 knots of wind with no sail up.
Has anyone else found this with cats or is this one just a little under specked?
I should mention I seem to see a lot of de-masted cats around the harbors compared to monohulls.
