I remember Charlie Kanter talking about tightening the rig so that the hull ends don't distort and pull up. What does that mean? Our Prout's rig is loose. The mast doesn't pump nor does it dance about, but the rig is loose. Tighten it too much and doors and hatches start to bind. I think it also depends on where the standing rigging is bolted to the topsides. I have seen a few different rig mounting points. Especially the lower shrouds.
