PostHeaderIcon Continuous Rigging

a rigging configuration where each shroud runs from its attachment turnbuckle at a chain plate through any number of spreader tips without termination, to its attachment point on the mast, as one continuous tensile element. With composite rigging, a bundle of stays attach to a chain plate. One element splits off at each spreader tip and attaches to the mast to form a diagonal, with the last element attaching to the masthead as the cap. Compare to: discontinuous rigging.
