(Big applause, claps drum roles, cymbals crashing...)

Int moths used to do this for the shrouds and forestay -

higher hounds = stiffer short topmast for more power.

pull the string - lower hounds = bendier longer topmast for better gust response.

( but now they have tuned the rigs better, so don't need to )
